DES MOINES, Iowa - Mitt Romney’s Iowa campaign announced Sunday night that the candidate is returning to Des Moines on Tuesday.

A flyer for the campaign event said Gov. Romney and his wife, Ann, will hold a rally at the Temple for the Performing Arts at 6 p.m. Doors open at 4 p.m., and tickets can be picked up at the Urbandale victory office.

The Des Moines Register endorsed Romney for president on Sunday, saying that his success in the public and private sectors makes him the stronger candidate to help the nation's economy recover.

It endorsed President Barack Obama in 2008, and said that Obama is "superbly qualified," but his efforts to rebuild the economy "have fallen short." It also criticized Obama for contributing to Washington's "partisan divide."

The Register backed Romney during January's Republican caucus. The newspaper said Romney would help consumers feel "more confident" about spending money, which would bring about "renewed investment by American companies."

The newspaper also said Romney should focus on building consensus instead of "wasting time on issues that animate many in his party."
