The Chicago Sun-Times editorial board endorsed Hillary Clinton for president Friday.
"Today, we endorse Hillary Clinton for president, and we endorse her early," the endorsement reads. "The best way to avert a train wreck is to wave a warning flag as soon as possible."
"Clinton is an imperfect candidate, to be sure, but Trump is an order of magnitude worse," the editorial added, referring to Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump. "In American history, has there ever been a less fit major party presidential candidate?"
The paper announced it was backing Clinton after the Chicago Tribune released its endorsement of Libertarian Gary Johnson for president earlier today.
The Sun-Times board appeared to poke at the Trib's endorsement.
"Allow us, as well, a special shout-out to those who understand what a danger Trump represents but are cool to Clinton: A vote for Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson, a man who could not even pass a basic world geography test, is not a principled protest gesture. It is a retreat to the sidelines," the Sun-Times editorial reads. "So, too, would be a vote for Green candidate Jill Stein. Neither can win. A vote for either of them would be a cop-out that cuts in Trump's favor. Let's not pretend to any false equivalencies between Clinton and Trump."
