Press Release - Endorsement: The Boston Globe Supports John Kasich for President

January 26, 2016

Note: "By voting for Kasich, New Hampshire can reward a candidate whose politics have been largely positive — and rebuke those candidates who have spent their campaign appealing to voters' fears and biases."

The Boston Globe

"New Hampshire Republicans can do their party a critical service on Feb. 9 by voting for an experienced political figure with a record of results, and thus dealing a blow to the divisive, demagogic candidates running on nativism and other political simplicities.

The Globe urges them to support John Kasich, whose record as governor of Ohio shows him to be a pragmatic, fiscally responsible executive, but one who is also concerned with helping the poor. His success in that important swing state, and his record as a moderate conservative who is willing to compromise in pursuit of results, suggests he is the Republican hopeful most likely to be successful on the national stage.

By voting for Kasich, New Hampshire can reward a candidate whose politics have been largely positive — and rebuke those candidates who have spent their campaign appealing to voters' fears and biases."

The Boston Globe's endorsement follows on the heels of six New Hampshire and Iowa newspapers' endorsements, including The Nashua Telegraph, Portsmouth Herald, Foster's Daily Democrat, Bow Times; Council Bluffs, IowaDaily Nonpareil and the New Hampshire Valley News.
