Chris Enloe reports that the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette has endorsed President Trump for reelection. Trump is the first Republican presidential candidate endorsed by the Post-Gazette in 48 years. Enloe writes:
One of Pennsylvania’s top newspapers has endorsed President Donald Trump over Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden, a major win for Trump in a state that is critical to winning the White House.
The endorsement was even more significant because the newspaper has not endorsed a Republican for president in nearly a half-century.
What are the details?
The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette editorial board, one of Pennsylvania’s largest newspapers, revealed late Saturday that Trump is their man.
“This newspaper has not supported a Republican for president since 1972. But we believe President Trump, for all his faults, is the better choice this year,” the newspaper announced on Twitter.
