Michael Walsh quoting The Arizona Republic’s president on their endorsement of Hillary Clinton:
We chose patriotism over party. We endorsed the Democrat. And then the reaction started pouring in. Threats against our business. Threats against our people. What is the correct response to any of the vile threats against me? What is the correct response to the more disturbing actions and words directed against so many others?
To all the other people who we heard from, who thanked us for our courage and our bravery, or who were bold enough to disagree with us on principle — the people who didn’t threaten to bomb our homes or harm our families — I have something for you too. To you, I give my gratitude. I’m grateful that you stood up to say that we live in a better world when we exchange ideas freely, fairly, without fear.
My election watching goes back to Dwight Eisenhower and 1956. This is the most interesting to date.
