The Detroit News endorses Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson

- The Detroit News announced Wednesday it is endorsing Libertarian presidential candidate Gary Johnson.

This is the first time in 143 years the paper has thrown their support behind someone who isn't a Republican candidate.

The paper's editorial editor, Nolan Finley, says Johnson best matched the values of the paper.

The News says Donald Trump goes against the editorial board's values as conservatives and Americans.

As for Hillary Clinton, the news agrees with most of her values but they say her career-long struggles with honesty and ethics are troubling.

They admit that Johnson winning would be a long shot.
