Godwin told reporters by telephone that he'd authorized "no" such endorsement -- only quiet support and regret he couldn't attend.
But one might have sensed trouble when Miller's hand-selected emcee told the crowd that dislike of Warner should be "reason enough" to vote for Miller, and that Miller was, in his words, "no ding dong."
