L.A.'s bigger newspapers are starting to roll out endorsements for high profile races. The LA Times this weekend took to the Democrats and the Daily News sided with Republican U.S. Senate Candidate Carly Fiorina.

In their editorial, the Daily News took a page from the Obama campaign and said change is needed. Citing Barbara Boxer's main attack on Fiorina, the former CEO of Hewlett-Packard who cut thousands of jobs at HP, they argue that "in the long run, preserving the business preserves jobs. As any business person knows, a bankrupt company doesn't equal any jobs at all."

In the same race, the LA Times goes for the U.S. Senate incumbent Barbara Boxer, saying Fiorina "reflects the doctrinaire conservatism that is ascendant in the Republican Party."
