The New York Times and Boston Globe editorial boards endorsed Joe Biden for president on Tuesday.

The big picture: The NYT editorial board, which previously endorsed Sens. Elizabeth Warren and Amy Klobuchar during the Democratic Primary, said Biden "is offering an anxious, exhausted nation something beyond policy or ideology," adding that his "campaign is rooted in steadiness, experience, compassion and decency."

  • The Globe, which endorsed Warren during the primary, said Biden is "a candidate who has the potential to restore not just common decency and civility to the Oval Office, but also a proper sense of the president’s role."

Worth noting: The announcements shouldn't come as a surprise, and New York and Massachusetts are not swing states in the presidential election.

Editor's note: This article has been updated with details of the Globe's endorsement and more context.

Ilhan Omar: The Squad expects liberal turn from Biden after election

Rep. Ilhan Omar told "Axios on HBO" that given the way progressives have shaped Joe Biden's policy platform, she and other members of "The Squad" expect a liberal turn from him if he's elected.

Why it matters: Progressives have largely refrained from publicly criticizing Biden in the lead-up to the election, even though he hasn't signed on to their most far-reaching policies. Instead, they're focusing solely on beating Trump.
