NEW YORK CITY, N.Y. (WIVB) — A major New York City newspaper has thrown its support behind Hillary Clinton as she campaigns to win the Democratic nomination in the race for the presidency.

The New York Daily News editorial board threw its support behind Clinton on Tuesday, just a week before the New York State primary. It called Clinton a, “superprepared warrior realist.”

That editorial board said despite seemingly impressive numbers on unemployment and job creation during President Barack Obama’s tenure, there’s still a good deal of work to be done.

“Clinton is unsparingly clear-eyed about what’s wrong with America while holding firm to what’s right with America,” the board wrote.

The Daily News staff criticized Bernie Sanders’ ideas as unfeasible and fiscally irresponsible.

Many have said if Clinton wins New York State, it will pave the way for her to achieve the Democratic nomination. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
