The New York Times endorses Clinton
WASHINGTON - The New York Times is endorsing Hillary Clinton for president.
The newspaper's editorial board on Saturday praised Clinton for bringing "a record of service and a raft of pragmatic ideas" to the election. It calls her "one of the most tenacious politicians of her generation, whose willingness to study and correct course is rare in an age of unyielding partisanship." Donald Trump is described as the worst nominee put forward by a major party in modern times.
The Times has endorsed only Democrats for president back to John Kennedy in 1960 and has backed that party's presidential nominees more often through its history. Its last Republican endorsement for the presidency was Dwight D. Eisenhower in 1952 and 1956. And its first endorsement, in 1860, was for Republican Abraham Lincoln.
