The major endorsements keep rolling in for Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton. Over the weekend, The New Yorker added its influential voice of support to the chorus calling for Americans to vote for Clinton on November 8. “On every issue of consequence, including economic policy, the environment, and foreign affairs, Hillary Clinton is a distinctly capable candidate: experienced, serious, schooled, resilient,” the magazine’s editors wrote, adding that her election as the first woman president would hold “immense historical importance.” It’s just the latest major endorsement in what has become a flotilla of them for Clinton. She wasn’t the only nominee to make endorsement news over the weekend, however. Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump picked up his very first major newspaper endorsement on Saturday, from a paper owned by a billionaire casino magnate who supports his candidacy.
With her haul of endorsements, Clinton has had no problem winning over the liberal establishment. But what about all the millennials who were — and might still be — feeling the Bern? Onetime Bernie Sanders supporter Miley Cyrus spent Saturday afternoon knocking on dorm room doors on the campus of George Mason University in Virginia campaigning for Clinton. “I’m here supporting Hillary. Are you going to vote?” Cyrus asked one 18-year-old student who promptly told the singer, “You’ll be proud to know I’ve already voted for Hillary.” Not too shabby as far as bellwethers go.
