Ohio Democrat backs Romney

Former Ohio Democratic congressman James Stanton, who served in Congress from 1971 to 1977, has endorsed Mitt Romney in a Cleveland Plain Dealer column. 

"I supported Barack Obama in 2008 because I liked what he had to say. But after four years of painful unemployment and $5 trillion in new debt under President Obama, it's clear to me that he just hasn't gotten the job done," he wrote. "I am endorsing Gov. Mitt Romney because I believe it's time for new leadership."
