(UnitedVoice.com) – Apparently, the powers that be over at the New York Times can’t make up their mind — or they are hedging their bets. For the first time in its history, the NYT announced on Sunday that it will be endorsing two candidates: Sen. Elizabeth Warren and Sen. Amy Klobuchar.

Reporters from the paper spent more than 12 hours with Warren and Klobuchar before its editorial board came to the decision to endorse both women.
In its announcement, the paper wrote that although they typically choose a “candidate with a more traditional approach to pushing the nation forward,” this election they want to recognize “radical” and “realist” models.
In the announcement, Warren was described as a “gifted storyteller” and Klobuchar as the “standard-bearer.”
The editorial board also wrote about why they didn’t choose some of the other candidates. For example, Joe Biden’s plans for health care and climate change aren’t as extensive as they should be and Sen. Bernie Sanders’ health is concerning.
