Three NH Papers Endorse Ron Paul for President
Following a third place finish in the Iowa caucus, three New Hampshire newspapers endorsed Republican candidate Ron Paul as their choice for president, reports Forbes
The Texas congressman’s campaign headquarters sent out a press release naming The Littleton Courier, Berlin Reporter, and Coos County Democrat as the three papers endorsing a Paul presidency. The three dailies are all owned by the same company, Salmon Press Newspapers, out of Meredith, NH.
One paper ran an op-ed stating, “Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney has been in the lead for months, but voters still seem desperate for an alternative. There’s always another candidate pulling stronger or almost as strong numbers in the polls. Voters have lost faith in Obama, but they are not sold on Romney to replace him. Congressman Ron Paul, however, has never voted to raise a tax and voted against all of the bailouts that have riled up Tea Partiers and Occupy Wall Streeters alike.”
Paul is currently stumping in New Hampshire in preparation for the state’s primary, which will take place Jan. 10.
