    This is really exciting news.

    Key swing state newspaper dumps Obama and endorses Romney - the first Republican it has supported since Nixon

    The Des Moines Register, the most influential newspaper in the swing state of Iowa, has rejected a personal plea from President Barack Obama for its support and backed Mitt Romney, the first Republican it has endorsed for 40 years.

    As the largest paper in Iowa, the Des Moines Register's endorsement is eagerly sought. This time around, it could carry additional symbolic weight because Iowa is the state that launched Obama on the road to the White House in 2008.

    The surprise decision buoyed the Romney campaign and the newspaper was among a slew that switched its allegiance from Obama in 2008 to the Republican nominee this time around.
