Dallas Morning News Endorses Clinton

Dallas Morning News officially endorsed Hillary Clinton on Tuesday, saying that she is the only “serious” candidate in the race.

The Hill reports:

Editors noted that the newspaper has not recommended a Democrat for president since before World War II, pointing to the party’s “over-reliance on government and regulation to remedy the country’s ills.”

They added, however that Clinton, unlike Republican rival Donald Trump, has “experience in actual governance, a record of service and a willingness to delve into real policy.”

“Resume vs. resume, judgment vs. judgment, this election is no contest,” they wrote.

“After nearly four decades in the public spotlight, 25 of them on the national stage, Clinton is a known quantity. For all her warts, she is the candidate more likely to keep our nation safe, to protect American ideals and to work across the aisle to uphold the vital domestic institutions that rely on a competent, experienced president,” the added.

“Hillary Clinton has spent years in the trenches doing the hard work needed to prepare herself to lead our nation. In this race, at this time, she deserves your vote.”

The newspaper’s editors on Tuesday explained their rationale for not endorsing Trump, saying he does not represent Republican ideals.

Trump “thumbed his nose at conservative orthodoxy altogether,” they wrote, adding that the GOP nominee has been “at odds with nearly every GOP ideal this newspaper holds dear.”

“Donald Trump is no Republican and is certainly no conservative.”
