Newspapers that have broke with tradition to endorse Democrat Hillary Clinton are paying a price – in subscriptions, the New York Times reported.

The Arizona RepublicThe Dallas Morning NewsThe Cincinnati Enquirerand The Houston Chronicle have all eschewed traditional support they would have been expected to extend to GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump to instead endorse Clinton.

"We're feeling the weight of our history," Phil Boas, the editorial page editor of The Arizona Republic, told The Times, which reported a flood of subscription cancellations followed the paper's decision.

Mike Wilson, editor of The Morning News, told Poynter the newspaper "paid a price for our presidential recommendation."

Boas noted he expected "a lot of cancellations" – and noted the Enquirer, also owned by Gannett, also felt the heat from subscribers.

"We know we're doing the right thing," Boas told the Times. "We feel very good about this decision."

"We're never in unison on anything, but it wasn't a difficult thing," Boas added, referring to the editorial board decision to defy 126 years of GOP presidential endorsements. "It was the kind of thing that just evolved over time."
