The newspaper’s editorial board stated it took “no pleasure” within the transfer — calling it as a substitute “a tragic state of affairs.”
“With abortion rights at stake and right-leaning candidates who can’t agree on who received the 2020 election, The Inquirer Editorial Board has chosen to not endorse a Republican for senate or governor,” it revealed.
The board has traditionally managed to search out “factors of settlement” with Republican candidates they don’t essentially assist wholesale, it wrote.
However the unwillingness of many of the GOP hopefuls to just accept Joe Biden’s 2020 election win, and their dedication to roll again abortion rights, has price them the paper’s backing.
The Inquirer “needed to assist present steering to Inquirer readers with an endorsement within the Republican primaries this yr — however we couldn’t,” the board concluded. “However, we won’t cease partaking in free argument and debate till reality prevails.”
