For the first time ever, The New York Times editorial board endorsed not one but two presidential candidates on Sunday: Democratic Sens. Elizabeth Warren (Mass.) and Amy Klobuchar (Minn.).

While pushing back on more “radical” ideas of Warren’s, “like nationalizing health insurance or decriminalizing the border,” the paper’s editorial board praised her anti-corruption legislation, and her proposals on housing reform, energy policy, social security expansion, and childcare and education.

The board called Klobuchar “a standard-bearer for the Democratic center” and applauded many of her initiatives as well as her long history of success as a lawmaker.

The Times acknowledged both “the radical and the realist models” on display within the Democratic field, but said the two women “are the Democrats best equipped to lead that debate.”
