In Critical Florida, The Sun Sentinel Has Endorsed Joe Biden
Endorsements from local newspapers can be critically important in election years. Many of America’s papers will make their selection known shortly, after the Republican National Convention has ended.
Florida, as usual, will be one of the key states during the 2020 election. While Biden is currently leading in the state, odds are that it will tighten up. The state’s Sun Sentinel Newspaper, however, is not waiting long to make their presidential endorsement. On Sunday the paper’s Editorial Board backed Biden in the November election.
The Sun Sentinel began:
“As former President Barack Obama declared last week, the main question is whether the presidency will be “the custodian of this democracy” and “defend the freedoms and ideals that so many Americans marched for and went to jail for, fought for and died for. Biden and Harris have what it takes to do that. They have the essential integrity, ability, experience and proven dedication to uphold the Constitution, serve the people, remedy our present crises, and regain respect for the government at home and abroad. The Democratic Party did itself proud in nominating them.”

Not only did the Editorial Board praise Biden and Harris, it slammed Trump. The piece continues, “The president should set an example of personal decency. Trump is vulgar, crass, coarse and vicious toward anyone, even in his own party, who disagrees with him. He cannot admit a mistake for fear that it would make him look weak. When a reporter asked him recently whether he regrets lying to the American people, he couldn’t come up with an answer.”
