    Romney Receives Endorsement of Orlando Sentinel.


    ORLANDO, Fla. – Mitt Romney, who often grouses that he is simultaneously running against President Obama and the mainstream media, will be greeted upon his arrival in Florida on Friday by a headline with which he cannot quarrel: The Orlando Sentinel is endorsing him.

    Four years after The Sentinel, central Florida’s largest newspaper, endorsed Barack Obama’s candidacy for president, the newspaper’s editorial page said Mr. Romney is the better choice this time.

    We have little confidence that Obama would be more successful managing the economy and the budget in the next four years,” the editorial in Friday’s edition said. “For that reason, though we endorsed him in 2008, we are recommending Romney in this race.”

    A little more than two weeks before the election, newspaper endorsements are steadily trickling in across the country. Both campaigns have spent considerable time trying to win endorsements, particularly from newspapers in battleground states, like The Sentinel.

    The Obama campaign has assigned top advisers to talk with editorial boards, trying to win endorsements from the newspapers that supported his candidacy in 2008. Mr. Romney has also been meeting with some editorial boards during campaign trips. The campaigns are bracing this weekend for several newspaper endorsements to be released in key states.

    Romney does seem to be on a roll.

    Yeah, Romney is definitely gaining ground. He just needs a couple of upsets in States Obama was predicted to win. That should seal it for him.

    This surprises me. The Sentinel, or "Slantinel" as it is locally known, is usually a Left to Moderate/Left rag.

    I am surprised at the trends, I still have no clue as to who will win this, but Romney has to be feeling better about his chances.

    Yeah, it has surprised many. But even they know it's time for Obama to go. Now we'll see if the People agree.
