The Twittersphere was busy with rumors of a big Romney endorsement in Wisconsin this morning and the packed hall erupted into great cheers when they realized beloved Packer Great Bart Starr was taking the stage. The former MVP of Super Bowls I and II, spoke at a campaign event on Friday in Milwaukee.
Starr has long been known as a Republican supporter so this support of Mitt Romney is not a real surprise. Yet, the hero quarterback of this state’s cherished team may change a few hearts during these last few days before the election.
From the JSOnline: He [Starr] said Romney embodies the same qualities he has seen in stars on the football field and in the field of business. Quoting from Vince Lombardi, Starr said “integrity and excellence” are key virtues that apply to Romney.
“I just think when you look at how successful he has been everywhere he has been and what he has done, I’m very confident when elected president he will confirm and make those remarkable levels of success every-day achievements for us.”
He said America will be “electing a truly, special gentleman.”
Take a look at a few of the Tweets as Bart Starr warms up the crowd and Packer fans across the country.
Will this enthusiasm be enough to turn this state red? In four days we’ll know.
