The Des Moines Register recently gave an endorsement to Romney. With the race still as close as ever, this last minute endorsement could be all Romney needs.
This is the first time since Nixon that The Register supports a republican.
David Axelrod responded to The Register by calling it simply confounding that this endorsement would happen. He said the editorial in question distorted and ignored the truth.
He remains confident that Obama will win reelection, citing the fact that they also endorsed Hilary Clinton during the 2008 primary before she lost to Obama.
