Utah’s Salt Lake Tribune endorses Hillary Clinton

Salt Lake TribuneThe Salt Lake Tribune, the largest circulated daily paper in Salt Lake City, endorsed Hillary Clinton for president Wednesday.

“It’s time to get serious. It has been amusing, to a degree, to watch the circus that was the Republican primary process struggle and fuss and finally produce such a disappointment to be its presidential nominee,” the editorial read. “…But now the ballots have been printed and are arriving in Utah mailboxes. It is time to make a reasonable, considerate, realistic vote for president of the United States.”

The editorial was critical of Clinton’s secrecy, but cited her history standing up “for religious freedom around the world” and her “equitable” tax policy as among the reasons for the endorsement.
