Clergy Endorsing Political Candidates

With primary election day tomorrow, I am seeing a large number of clergy making it obvious on social media how they are going to vote. 

I know pastors need to have private life, but I also know of some local clergy who have lost significant credibility by getting involved in partisan electoral politics instead of issue-centered politics.  I have been told one of the major reasons I am asked to represent Christians and Lutherans in the city is my unwillingness to be partisan in social media or post bumper stickers on my car or signs in my yard. 

I wish our synod had a church and society committee where religious leaders could get guidance on how to function in a time or extremely partisan and divisive politics.
