LAS VEGAS (AP) -- Nevada's largest newspaper is endorsing Mitt Romney for president, saying he has the principles and experience to lead the U.S. to prosperity again.

The Las Vegas Review-Journal, in its Sunday editions, wrote that Romney was a Republican governor in heavily Democratic Massachusetts who had to work with Democrats to get things done.

The newspaper states his business management skills turned failing companies into profitable ones, and he has pledged to create a Cabinet of private-sector leaders focused on strengthening the nation's business climate.

The Review-Journal faulted President Barack Obama, saying his administration lacks in business experience and is openly hostile to free-market capitalism.

The newspaper endorsed Republican U.S. Sen. John McCain for president four years ago.
