Editorial Pages Back Dem Ticket

With the race to the White House in its final full week, newspapers in the metro area are doling out their endorsements for the candidates.

This weekend, six more New Jersey newspapers endorsed Democrat Barack Obama for president, saying in editorials that he was the candidate best suited to bring the change that nation needs to get back on track.

To date, seven New Jersey daily newspapers have endorsed the Democratic candidate: The Star-Ledger of Newark, The Record, The Times, The Gloucester County Times of Woodbury, The Asbury Park Press of Neptune, the Courier-Post and the Home News Tribune of East Brunswick. The state's remaining daily newspapers have not yet announced their endorsements.

In New York, the Daily News and New York Time both endorsed Obama. The NY Post endorsed McCain back in early September.
