Detroit News Endorses McCain

Michigan on January 15 looks like a McCain-Romney battle, one that Romney needs to win -- he's from there, his father was governor there, his father-in-law was mayor there, and he's been the only one advertising there. Well, not for long. Word is that McCain goes up with TV ads this weekend. Meanwhile, the Detroit News endorses the Arizona Senator over the native son today. Here's what the editorial says about Mitt:

...we see Romney as an appealing candidate with considerable depth on key issues. He has Michigan roots and the best understanding of the automotive industry of any candidate. He brings an analytical bent and a business executive's tools to politics, admirable traits that would bring advantage to governing.

Unfortunately, Romney hasn't campaigned hard enough on those strengths. Instead, he has panted after the GOP's most conservative values voters, taking hard-line stands on gay marriage and abortion in conflict to his earlier positions as governor of Massachusetts. The result is that many voters will wonder if they're seeing the real Romney.
