Arizona Republic’s first ever endorsement of a Democrat for President
Arizona Republic’s endorsement provides a uniquely comprehensive view of the issues. Here’s a quick summary of what they wrote:

  • Clinton has a steady hand, a cool head and the ability to think carefully before acting. Trump does not.
  • Clinton’s flaws pale in comparison to Trump’s
  • Arizona tried Trumps approach to immigration and it doesn’t work.
  • Clinton champions gender equality and human rights. Trump lacks human decency, empathy and respect.
  • Clinton has centrist roots that assure competent nominees to the Supreme Court. Trump is a wild card.
  • Trump’s inability to control his own words represents a real threat to our nation’s security.
  • A Clinton presidency is an opportunity to heal this nation. Trump offers a recipe for permanent civil discord.
