Mitt Romney continued to rack up a flood of Florida newspaper endorsements this weekend. Many of the papers that endorsed Romney– including Florida Today, the Pensacola News Journal, and the Naples Daily News– endorsed Obama in 2008. Here’s what the editorial boards had to say:
Florida Today: “Romney has a clearer vision for a modern economy. He has a better understanding than President Barack Obama of what could help manufacturers and service companies grow and hire. And he has executive experience and a record of problem solving that Obama did not have before taking office.”
Florida Times-Union: “If Obama is elected, the likely outcome is four more years of gridlock. The nation can’t stand anymore of it; the issues are too great.”
Naples Daily News: “This time four years ago, this newspaper’s editorial board sized up the state of the economy and other issues and concluded the country needed a change, to Obama. While we believe the national economy is on the way back, we believe it will take another administration change, to Romney, to bring the leadership that will make that recovery timely, robust and sustainable.
Pensacola News Journal: “We’re confident Romney can find a way to get people working again.”
Romney also nabbed the endorsements of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel, the Orlando Sentinel and the Tampa Tribune while the Miami Herald and the Tampa Bay Times have endorsed Obama.
