Why Texas newspapers are breaking with tradition and urging voters to support Hillary Clinton


Texas may be a historically red state, but this year, the race is tight—and newspapers across the state are urging voters to back Hillary Clinton. (That includes The Dallas Morning News, which hasn’t endorsed a Democrat in 76 years.)

Here’s why they’re with her:

Houston Chronicle
“These are unsettling times…They require a steady hand…The times also require a person who envisions a hopeful future for this nation, a person who has faith in the strong, prosperous and confident America we hope to bequeath to our children and grandchildren…That’s not Donald Trump’s America. It is Hillary Clinton’s…” July 29, 2016

Dallas News
“[Hillary Clinton] 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. 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.” September 7, 2016

El Paso Times
“In this election, voters have a choice between Clinton, who is one of the best-prepared nominees in recent decades, and Trump, who is historically unqualified to sit in the Oval Office. [We] endorse Hillary Clinton for president. Voting for her allows El Pasoans to push back on efforts to marginalize and demonize our community.” September 30, 2016

Corpus Christi Caller-Times
“The woman who memorably declared that women’s rights are human rights and that it takes a village to raise a child is the candidate who has the right priorities and the perceptiveness to make this divided but great country greater.” October 1, 2016
