Major Paper In Battleground State Endorses Clinton After Backing GOP For Nearly a Century

A major Ohio newspaper announced that is endorsing Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton after supporting Republican presidential candidates for nearly a century.

In an editorial piece published Friday, The Cincinnati Enquirer wrote: “We supported Republicans for president for almost a century – a tradition this editorial board doesn’t take lightly. But this is not a traditional race, and these are not traditional times. Our country needs calm, thoughtful leadership to deal with the challenges we face at home and abroad. We need a leader who will bring out the best in all Americans, not the worst.”

“That’s why there is only one choice when we elect a president in November: Hillary Clinton.”

The paper said Clinton was a “competent” secretary of state who made “mistakes” in Benghazi that were “tragic” but called Republicans’ assessment of her actions a “diabolical conspiracy.”

“Clinton, meanwhile, was a competent secretary of state, with far stronger diplomatic skills than she gets credit for. Yes, mistakes were made in Benghazi, and it was tragic that four Americans lost their lives in the 2012 terror attacks on the US consulate there,” the paper reads. “But the incident was never the diabolical conspiracy that Republicans wanted us to believe, and Clinton was absolved of blame after lengthy investigations.”

The editorial board wrote that while they are sympathetic to voters interest in the change, the Enquirer concludes that not all change is good.

“Our country needs to seek thoughtful change, not just change for the sake of change. Four years is plenty of time [for Trump] to do enough damage that it could take America years to recover from, if at all,” it wrote.

The Gannett publication announced its endorsement in advance of the first presidential debate between the two nominees. Ohio is a battleground state that both candidates have increasingly worked harder to win.
