First Time Since NIXON - NYT Endorses NO REPUBLICAN To Congress

A Sign of the Times

For the first time since before Watergate, the New York Times endorsed no Republicans for election to Congress this year.

It's a sign of a few things: The polarized country, the end of a meaningful moderate wing of the GOP, and the Times's own move left.

A look back at the Times archives through 1972 finds that the paper's powerful editorial page endorsed at least one Republican for the House or Senate every year. Some of these were well-known local moderates like Hamilton Fish and Bill Green. Others include a young Connecticut candidate named John Rowland in 1986.
