Boston Globe Endorses Hillary Clinton

The Boston Globe editorial board endorsed Hillary Clinton in the Feb. 9 Democratic primary in New Hampshire, concluding that it’s “her time” to be president in an editorial Sunday. The newspaper said the former secretary of state is the best candidate to “keep what Obama got right, while also fixing his failures, especially on gun control and immigration reform. That will require a focus and toughness that Obama sometimes lacked.” The paper endorsed Obama over Clinton in 2008. “This is Clinton’s time, and the Globe enthusiastically endorses her in the Feb. 9 Democratic primary in New Hampshire,” the paper wrote. The endorsement follows support from The Des Moines Register on Saturday and the Concord Monitor earlier Sunday.
