in Uncategorized by

With little more than two weeks until Iowans caucus, The Des Moines Register is endorsing Mitt Romney for president.

The Register posted its editorial online Saturday evening and would print it in Sunday’s editions. The pick-up was a boost for Romney who hasn’t visited the state often but impressed the paper’s editors with his “sobriety, wisdom and judgment.”

The largest newspaper backed Sen. John McCain’s nomination in 2008.

The endorsement noted the newspaper passed Romney over last time, but now says “has matured as a candidate.”
