Honor | Main | Stanley Kurtz: Obama's Tactics May Be Small, But His Political Ambitions Are Vast

Des Moines Register Endorses Romney, Completing a Perfect Sweep of All Six of Iowa's Largest Newspapers for Romney

Three of the papers endorsed Obama in 2008. The Register hasn't endorsed a Republican for President in 40 years.

Poor Stephanie Cutter was left sputtering that the Des Moines Register's endorsement was not "based in reality." She basically argues the Register has come down with a bad case of Romnesia-- an affliction that's sweeping the state.

Romney is behind in the RCP average of Iowa polls, but they've seemed to be confident about the state. Throwing in endorsements from all six of the state's biggest papers -- three of which endorsed Obama in 2008 -- I have to think Iowa is now in our column.
