28 U.S. newspapers switch endorsements to Mitt Romney in 2012

Stop the Presses! This is a huge story.

As of today, 28 newspapers in 20 states that endorsed Barack Obama in 2008 have now endorsed Mitt Romney for President in 2012.

Newspapers do not switch back-and-forth between parties lightly and considering that the vast majority of American newspapers lean left, it's remarkable that so many are backing Romney.

The best example of the seismic shift is the Des Moines Register, which endorsed nine consecutive Democratic presidential candidates going back to 1972. The Des Moines Register is urging Iowa residents to elect Mitt Romney on Nov. 6.
