Citing Joe Biden's "stunning" victories on Super Tuesday, the South Florida Sun-Sentinel endorsed the former vice president's bid to win the Democratic Party's presidential nomination.
In an editorial posted Thursday, less than two weeks before Florida's March 17 primary, the newspaper said Biden's victories revealed "the depth and breadth of America's yearning for the return of decency and dignity to the White House."
"Democrats want, need and deserve a candidate known not for anger, but for accomplishments; for humility, not hostility; and for decency, not demagoguery," the editorial reads.
"This is the most fateful election since the Civil War. It is critical to replace President Donald Trump, who has proved himself unfit and unworthy in every respect, with someone who deserves the trust of America and the respect of the world."
The newspaper claimed that "Biden is the candidate Trump fears the most — so much so that he committed impeachable offenses to disparage him."
It said Biden's nomination would help Democrats' chances in Congress and in state legislatures.
And it claimed Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., would "be a drag on down-ballot Democrats, including those who defeated Republicans in 2018."
"Widely experienced. Thoroughly decent. Ideologically moderate," the editorial reads. "If Joe Biden is not a man for all seasons, he is certainly the man of the hour."
