Last night, I noted that the Des Moines Register endorsed Mitt Romney for president. This is the first time that paper has endorsed the Republican presidential nominee since 1972.
It turns out that the Des Moines Register is not alone among Iowa newspapers. In fact, the three other major newspapers in this battleground state also endorse Romney. They are the Cedar Rapids Gazette, the Quad City Times, and the Sioux City Journal.
The titles of the Quad City Times and Sioux City Journal endorsements might be particularly galling to diehard supporters of our once hopey-changey president: “Ready for Change” and “Mitt Romney: He’s the Change America Needs.”
