The New York Times editorial board i s endorsing two Democratic candidates for president.

The board says it is endorsing Senators Amy Klobuchar and Elizabeth Warren in a break with convention.

They say the decision is meant to address the "realist" and "radical" models. The board says "President Trump must be defeated," but it does not take a position on the best path forward for Democrats, saying both approaches warrant serious consideration.
