    Who could blame them?

    From your link:

    Why the change? One big reason was Mitt Romney’s support of Senate Bill 5 in Ohio, which stripped collective bargaining rights from police officers.

    People familiar with the group’s decision said leaders had been disturbed by Mr. Romney’s statements of strong support for several antiunion initiatives, particularly the move in Ohio to restrict the collective-bargaining rights of public-union employees, including police and firefighters. The measure was overturned by voters in Ohio last year.

    Because they haven't done so in 98 years. Police and fighter fighter unions almost always endorse republicans, but as of late the GOP are going after them as well.
