Does the same pattern hold for another key early-state newspaper, The Des Moines Register, which last night endorsed Mitt Romney. Rebuilding the economy is the nation's top priority, and Romney makes the best case among the Republicans that he could do that, it wrote. He stands out in the current field of Republican candidates.

A Lot of Democrats, Apparently. There is a reason most people here no longer read the paper. Obama pushed hard to get the Registers endorsement, but his weird initial demand to keep his final phone interview with the editorial board off the record seems to have irked them, and rightly so.
