There was a notable nod to Hillary Clinton this morning. The Dallas Morning News, a major paper in Texas, has endorsed the Democratic nominee. 

It's the first time the publication has given a thumbs-up to a Democratic candidate since the start of World-War-Two — more than 75 years. 

For more on what the paper's approval means in the Lone Star State, Take Two spoke to Edward Harpham; he's a professor of political science at the University of Texas at Dallas and author of the book "Governing Texas."
