As Republican Mitt Romney and President Barack Obama speed through the final week of campaigning before the Nov. 6 election, both candidates are piling up endorsements from newspapers across the country. According to Editor & Publisher, more than 80 newspapers had endorsed Obama as of Oct. 19. Romney's endorsements stand at more than 110, but Obama is winning the circulation battle, with his combined endorsements topping 9 million in circulation as opposed to Romney's 4.9 million.
