2016 : Detroit News Pass on Republican Candidate for President for First Time

September 29, 2018 all-day

The Detroit News made history with its presidential endorsement this morning – but not in the way you might expect.

For the first time in the newspaper’s 143-year history, its editorial board endorsed a presidential candidate who wasn’t a Republican. But instead of endorsing Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton, like many other newspapers in a similar conundrum, the News chose third-party candidate Gary Johnson, on the Libertarian ticket.
