While much is being made of The Arizona Republic’s endorsement of Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, one of our own is unsure it will sway a lot of Arizona voters.
To be fair, it is the first time in the paper’s history that the editorial board has endorsed a Democratic nominee since it was founded in the late 1800s. However, Arizona’s Morning News host Jim Sharpe feels the endorsement will not have pull with an important voting group — young people — simply because they tend to not read the paper.
“This thing (the newspaper) is about as relevant to some millennials as a cassette Walkman,” he joked during a Wednesday appearance on MSNBC.
However, Sharpe said the paper is certainly influential and, in a tight race such as the one between Clinton and Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump in Arizona, it could end up being a big deal.
