CONCORD, N.H. -- The Concord Monitor has not endorsed any candidate for president, but in an editorial for tomorrow's paper it is clear they are far from undecided about Mitt Romney.
Their tough editorial, with the headline "Romney should not be the next president", was posted online this afternoon and ends with these words:
"When New Hampshire partisans are asked to defend the state's first-in-the-nation primary, we talk about our ability to see the candidates up close, ask tough questions and see through the baloney. If a candidate is a phony, we assure ourselves and the rest of the world, we'll know it.
Mitt Romney is such a candidate. New Hampshire Republicans and independents must vote no. "
UPDATE: The Romney campaign responds with this statement:
"The Concord Monitor supports driver's licenses for illegals, wants to take God out of the Pledge of Allegiance and is opposed to school choice. Mitt Romney disagrees with them on all those issues. No wonder they want to stop him."
