 The New York Times Endorses Elizabeth Warren and Amy Klobuchar For 2020

Baltimore, MD-

The Democratic race for presidential candidacy is on. Elizabeth Warren and Amy Klobuchar just received a coveted endorsement from The New York Times.

After interviewing the 9 democratic candidates about the voters’ key issues heading into the election, the Times selected Warren and Klobuchar as their candidates. Well, not quite “theirs”, but this who they think is ‘best’ for the people.

“Both the radical and the realist models warrant serious consideration. If there were ever a time to be open to new ideas, it is now. If there were ever a time to seek stability, now is it,” the Times’ Editorial Board wrote on Sunday night. “That’s why we’re endorsing the most effective advocates for each approach.”

Both candidates have developed a great reputation amongst voters thus far. According to the Washington Post, Klobuchar and Warren are currently the 5th and 3rd strongest candidates. Here are official polling numbers.

“May the Best Woman Win”

The New York Times is aware that their selections may ruffle some feathers. But, they maintain that they are simply working in the favor of the people. “There will be those dissatisfied that this page is not throwing its weight behind a single candidate, favoring centrists or progressives,” the board wrote. “But it’s a fight the party itself has been itching to have since Mrs. Clinton’s defeat in 2016, and one that should be played out in the public arena and in the privacy of the voting booth.”

“May the best woman win.”
