Arizona Republic Endorses Romney

GOP presidential hopeful Mitt Romney was endorsed on Friday by The Arizona Republic, the largest newspaper in the state where voters go to the polls next Tuesday.

The paper’s editorial board called Romney “among the most skilled job-creating candidates for chief executive we can imagine,” citing his “real-world achievements" at Bain Capital and as governor of Massachusetts as evidence of his promise as a presidential candidate.

The Arizona Republic did take issue with several of Romney’s positions, including his opposition to the DREAM Act for illegal-immigrant children raised in the U.S. The paper also swiped at him for his speaking style, writing, “There are better orators in American politics.”

 

Still, of the four GOP hopefuls left in the race, “Mitt Romney is by far the best candidate to represent Republicans in the coming race against President Obama,” the board wrote. “He is best prepared to do what needs to be done, which is nothing less than restoring the American economy.”
