The Salt Lake Tribune endorsed Mitt Romney over Salt Lake City Councilwoman Jenny Wilson.

The editorial board: “The Salt Lake Tribune famously passed on Romney six years ago and endorsed Barack Obama for president. … It was the right call then. In 2012 Romney wanted to dismantle the Affordable Care Act. Now he knows that would be counterproductive. He also opposed citizenship for DACA recipients. Now he says we need to honor the deal the Obama administration made with them. … This time we’re choosing Romney, and we’re expecting him to make good on his promise to reach across the aisle to broker major legislation.”
