Lee Iacocca Endorses Romney


Lee Iacocca, champion of the Ford Mustang and the Chrysler minivan, and long-time Democratic supporter, has endorsed Mitt Romney.  Human Events has more…

After a lifetime of voting for and supporting Democrats — and even declining appointment to the U.S. Senate from a Democratic governor — Lee Iacocca Thursday endorsed Republican Mitt Romney for president.

The blessings of the onetime Chrysler chairman are expected to help Romney in two highly competitive states: Pennsylvania, where the 88-year-old Iacocca was born and raised and is still widely respected, and in Michigan, where Iacocca rose to become a major figure in the auto industry and won international praise for cobbling together the government-backed loans that saved Chrysler in 1980.

Iacocca, who now lives in California, issued a statement saying he backed Romney because of his “dozens of years of experiences in the public and private sectors” and because the GOP nominee has a plan that “will enable a stronger America.”

I’m thinking that after everything that has happened in the last four years, that even more democratic supporters aren’t jumping ship.

  • Apparently some liberal newspapers are endorsing Romney, as well. Fox had the story yesterday.

  • This is surprising considering Obama single handedly saved the auto industry. 😉 I think there are more Democrats jumping ship than we know about, they are just keeping it quiet.
