The Chicago Tribune endorsed Gary Johnson for president today. They noted that they said in March they couldn’t/wouldn’t endorse Donald Trump. The editorial today listed the reasons they couldn’t endorse Hillary Clinton: the spending, the lying, etc. (For a complete list, see the editorial.)
Instead of picking between what they call “such disappointing major party candidates,” the Tribune decided to endorse “a principled candidate.” The Tribune likes Gary Johnson’s “small L-libertarianism, built on individual freedom and convinced that, on both ends of Pennsylvania Avenue, official Washington is clumsy, expensive and demonstrably unable to solve this nation’s problems.” I do, too.
