John Elway Endorses Mitt Romney, Paul Ryan

Two days before the first debate between President Barack Obama and Governor Mitt Romney, John Elway says he's endorsing Romney.

"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.”

Romney commented about the endorsement in a news release Monday night. He said, “Leaders come in many forms, and John Elway has always exemplified leadership, first as a quarterback for the Super Bowl champion Broncos, and now as an executive vice president for the team."

Romney and President Obama will debate for the first time Wednesday at the University of Denver. You can watch the debate on KKTV 11 News at 7 p.m.
