The Colorado Springs Gazette, The Pueblo Chieftain, The Daily Sentinel of Grand Junction, and Longmont Times-Call have endorsed Mitt Romney.
The Longmont Times-Call endorsement is especially notable. The agricultural suburb of Boulder has both conservative and liberal roots and voted for Barack Obama and a liberal city council in 2008. The Times-Call endorsed Obama in the last election.
This year, the newspaper backs Romney for being a businessman, saying that he would bring a professional background to the office that needs job creation and management skills.
“This nation, after all, was supposed to be a land where the government served the people who were free to pursue their dreams in private enterprise,” the Times-Call endorsement reads.
The Denver Post endorsed President Obama on Friday. The paper’s opinion section has been filled with incumbent endorsements this campaign season.
The Post’s editorial board writes that ”though there is much in Mitt Romney’s résumé to suggest he is a capable problem-solver, the Republican nominee has not presented himself as a leader who will bring his party closer to the center at a time when that is what this country needs.”
The Boulder Daily Camera has also endorsed Obama.
