Clinton is the first Democrat backed by the paper in more than 75 years

The Dallas Morning News endorsed Hillary Clinton on Wednesday, the first time the newspaper has recommended a Democrat for president in more than 75 years.

“Unlike Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton has experience in actual governance, a record of service and a willingness to delve into real policy,” the Morning News editorial board wrote. “Resume vs. resume, judgment vs. judgment, this election is no contest.”

This was the first time since before World War II that the Morning News has endorsed a Democrat, but the paper said that it could in no way back Trump.

On Tuesday, the newspaper published another editorial titled “Donald Trump is No Republican,” in which the Morning News‘ editors slammed the GOP nominee, telling Texas voters that Trump “does not deserve your vote.”

The Morning News previously endorsed Ohio Gov. John Kasich during the the Republican primaries.
