Endorsement: requires 75% approval.
Can only be given to one candidate. Only endorsed candidates are eligible for campaign funds.
Approval: requires 50% + 1
Can be given to more than one qualified candidate.
If one wants to endorse one of the candidates up for approval, then the motion to pass the approval recommendation must be defeated. Then a new motion to consider that candidate for endorsement can be introduced. That will require a second, then discussion and then passage by 75%.
