Union Leader Publisher: Romney 'Represents The One Percent' [Video]

In an interview with Fox News this morning, New Hampshire Union Leader publisher Joe McQuaid explained that his paper declined to endorse Mitt Romney for the Republican presidential nomination because he “represents the 1 percent.”

McQuaid speculated that Romney’s immense wealth and close ties to the finance industry could be a liability in the 2012 election. “Gingrich is going to have a better time in the general election than Mitt Romney,” McQuaid said. “I think it’s going to be Obama’s 99 percent versus the 1 percent, and Romney sort of represents the 1 percent.”
