There’s a split decision of endorsements between two of the largest newspapers in Ohio.
The Cleveland Plain Dealer supports President Obama for a second term. The paper also supported them in 2008, but they’re supporting him this time with “less enthusiasm or optimism” than four years ago.
The newspaper praised Obama’s leadership on the auto industry bailout, health care overhaul, education, and the war on terror.
They also said that Mitt Romney’s frequent view changes “raise questions about his core principles and make his lack of policy details all the more troubling”.
On the other hand, The Columbus Dispatch has given its endorsement to Mitt Romney. The paper believes the country needs to move in a new direction. The paper wrote, “Obama has failed. That is why Mitt Romney is the preferred choice for president. Romney’s adult life has been spent turning around troubled private and public institutions.”
