(CNN) – The largest newspaper in Nevada endorsed Mitt Romney's presidential bid on Sunday, a week from next Saturday's caucuses in the state.
The Las Vegas Review-Journal credited the former Massachusetts governor for his business experience, arguing his "greatest strength is his command of economic issues and his understanding of what the private sector needs to create jobs."

Although the paper called former House Speaker Newt Gingrich Romney's only real rival for the GOP nomination, they also criticized his prior Washington experience.
