Romney lands Florida paper endorsement


The Orlando Sentinel, a Florida newspaper, has given its endorsement to Mitt Romney, citing "little confidence" in a second term for President Obama:

Economic growth, three years into the recovery, is anemic. Family incomes are down, poverty is up. Obama's Republican challenger, Mitt Romney, highlighted these and other hard truths in this week's second debate. ...

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

An endorsement from the Sentinel is significant for two reasons: 1) Florida is currently a toss up, with the latest polls showing Romney or Obama with a slight lead, depending on the poll. 2) The paper endorsed Obama in 2008.
