I’m not a Jets fan, but I just became a Woody Johnson fan. Via Bloomberg (hat tip: ST reader GWR):
New York Jets owner Woody Johnson says helping Mitt Romney win the U.S. presidential election is more important to him than his team finishing the National Football League season with a winning record.
Johnson, New York chairman for the Romney campaign, said yesterday in an interview with Bloomberg Television’s “Market Makers” that if forced to choose he’d pick a win by the Republican challenger against President Barack Obama on Nov. 6.
“Well, I think you always have to put country first,” Johnson said. “So I think it’s very, very important, not only for us, but in particular for our kids and grandkids that this election come off with Mitt Romney and Ryan as president and vice president.”
In related news, Denver Broncos VP and NFL Hall of Famer John Elway has endorsed the Romney/Ryan 2012 campaign:
“Governor Romney is a proven leader with the experience and background to turn around our struggling economy,” said John Elway. “In these tough economic times, we need a president who understands how to get America working again – by standing on the side of taxpayers and small-business owners who do the real job creating. I am endorsing Governor Romney and Congressman Ryan for President and Vice President because I know having the courage to make decisions and tackle challenges is what leads to results and real change. America needs a comeback team – Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan are that team.”
Bravo to these two gentlemen. Bravo.
