Des Moines Register Endorses Marco Rubio and Hillary Clinton Ahead of Iowa Caucuses


Des Moines Register enforces Marco Rubio for the GOP and Hillary Clinton for the Democrats ahead of the 2016 Iowa Caucuses. According to RCP, Rubio is running a distant third to Donald Trump and Ted Cruz. Meanwhile for the Democrats, RCP has Hillary ahead of Berniew Sanders but only because of one poll that is way out of whack with the majority of them in Iowa. The last Des Moines Register poll had Clinton only up by 2 on Sanders; however, the momentum is on the side of the self-proclaimed socialist, Sanders.

The Iowa Caucus is scheduled for Monday, February 1, 2016.

U.S. Senator Marco Rubio and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton received potential boosts to their presidential bids in Iowa by winning the endorsements of the Des Moines Register, the dominant newspaper in the state where the Feb. 1 caucuses will start the 2016 nomination voting.

“Rubio has the potential to chart a new direction for the party, and perhaps the nation, with his message of restoring the American dream,” Iowa’s largest newspaper said in an endorsement of the Florida Republican published on its website Saturday evening. “We endorse him because he represents his party’s best hope.”

On the Democratic side, the newspaper’s editorial said this of Clinton: “No other candidate can match the depth or breadth of her knowledge and experience.”

Hearing about the endorsement on a campaign stop in Davenport, Iowa, Clinton said: “I’m very pleased.”

The editorial made note of Clinton’s top rival, U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont, and the emotional appeal he’s generated in the party: “In the final analysis, Iowa Democrats will have to choose between the lofty idealism of Bernie Sanders and the down-to-earth pragmatism of Hillary Clinton. For some, this will be a choice of whether to vote with their hearts or their heads.”

      This newspaper’s endorsement of candidates is an absolute joke. The only experience Hillary has is forty years of being a thief and crook.

      Marco Rubio is nothing more than a RINO liberal that managed to fool the people of the TEA party
      into believing he was a conservative.

      The only thing Hillary should be running for is a place in line for measurements of a orange jumpsuit. She clearly broke the law, numerous crimes committed with the use of her private server, jeopardized national security at it’s worse. Deliberately knowing this should never, never happen, she did it anyway. There’s enough proof to indite her now. Who even knows with her world connections what negotiations or promises she made in addition to what top secret and beyond issues have been permeated.

      If the GOP Establishment doesn’t pull together and support the front runner, the damage that comes from that will haunt them forever. They have already lost support for their weak attempts stop Obama, and i mean really weak. It almost seems that they are helping the democrats .
