All Four Major Iowa Newspapers Back Romney
Posted: 10/29/2012 | By: Leigh Ann Caldwell | CBS News
As far as newspaper endorsements are concerned, Mitt Romney made a
clean sweep in Iowa: all four major newspapers, including the state's
largest paper, The Des Moines Register, backed Mitt Romney.
Register's editorial board said it engaged in a "vigorous debate" over
whom to endorse this election. Ultimately, the newspaper that hasn't
backed a Republican since Richard Nixon in 1972, decided to throw its
weight behind the Republican nominee.
