    Donald Trump picked up his first major newspaper endorsement of the November election over the weekend when the Las Vegas Review-Journal became one of the few to back the Republican nominee. “These are turbulent times,” the newspaper, which is owned by Republican megadonor Sheldon Adelson, said in an editorial. “More and more Americans express frustration and disillusionment today with the political institutions that govern the nation. They clamor for an alternative to the incestuous and pernicious atmosphere dominating the capital. They see a vast array of lobbyists, elected officials and entrenched interests manipulating the levers of power for their own...

    Vogue Endorses Hillary Clinton Using A Photo From 1993 By Kelly Riddell - The Washington Times - Tuesday, October 18, 2016 ANALYSIS/OPINION: The media and elitist love for Hillary Clinton, the Democratic presidential nominee, continues. It’s unhinged. Vogue Magazine made its first political endorsement on Tuesday backing Mrs. Clinton for president. The endorsement’s not surprising, given its editor-in-chief, Anna Wintour, is a huge Clinton bundler. Ms. Wintour helped organize a multimillion dollar fundraiser for Mrs. Clinton in New York City just Monday night with celebrities Sarah Jessica Parker, Anne Hathaway, Neil Patrick Harris, Julia Roberts and others.

Quoting from the article about why it will not endorse Trump: This year, however, The Courier cannot endorse the Republican Party’s candidate. Americans always put their country first, way ahead of their party, and we withhold an endorsement not to spite the party for selecting Donald J. Trump, but because its nominee has clearly proven to be unfit to be president of the United States of America. Also quoting from the article about why the news...

    Detroit News endorses ridiculous ticket. Note: In the interest of disclosure I guess I should mention that I used to be a Detroit News contributor. Not sure why it would matter, but there you go. You may have read that the Detroit News “for the first time in its 143 history” endorsed a presidential candidate that wasn’t a Republican. Technically that’s true, but the paper also failed to endorse a Republican in 2004, when it refused to lend its support to George W Bush. That’s fine, and it’s their right to do so, but what they did today makes absolutely...

Trump predicted at the time that Cruz would eventually endorse, but said that “if he gives it, I will not accept it.” "He'll come and endorse in the next little while because he has no choice. … I don't want his endorsement. Ted, stay home, relax, enjoy yourself." But when Cruz’s endorsement came Friday in the form of a lengthy Facebook...

    Ted Cruz supporters were alarmed Wednesday at suggestions that he was on the verge of endorsing Donald Trump. They worry that the Texas senator could squander his brand as a fighter — and goodwill earned among many through his stubborn refusal to back his party's nominee — if he caves with nothing to show for it. Cruz has held out on the grounds that Trump is insufficiently conservative, and because Trump attacked his wife and father down the stretch of their heated battle for the Republican nomination. The senator even took the extraordinary step of declining to endorse Trump during...

    Cruz killed his political career tonight. He became personally embittered about Donald Trump and found himself temperamentally unable to endorse Trump for President. By doing this, he strengthened Hillary's campaign and the potential for the destruction of America. Cruz didn't have to do this. He could have stayed true to his convictions, as misguided as they are, and still endorsed Trump. As Cruz noted, the Republican Party was established in order to abolish slavery and free black people in America. Abraham Lincoln was our first President.
