Clarity and fairness we've been publishing our choice. The highest office since eighteen eighteen sixty in those divided times. We urged voters to embrace a tall Republican named Abraham Lincoln. The board comes to decisions by doing doing something very few in America. Get a chance to we sit down with each candidate by themselves for over an hour and ask them any question. We want it safe to say that before for these interviews started. We as a board had no clue whom we did endorse no clear. Choice had emerged primary debates. And we're eager to figure out the best candidate for the Democrats we wanted to. I know who would be the most effective president with the temperament and character best duty for the job but we also know the biggest question on the minds of many Democratic voters is who can beat Donald Trump. They have a lot to think about. The twenty twenty election is beginning in the shadow of voter suppression election hacking presidential impeachment not to mention frightening in climate change in escalating foreign conflicts. So if voters deserve total transparency as. They make their decision as to who should run against Donald Trump. So Oh every day for the next.
