Actor John Voight, joined Mitt Romney at a rally held at the Fish House in Pensacola, Florida and gave his endorsement of Mitt Romney:
Academy Award winning actor Jon Voight threw his support behind Mitt Romney today, telling a crowd of hundreds at a local restaurant that Newt Gingrich “falls short” of having the characteristics needed to run the White House.
“Governor Romney is a man of faith, honor, love, and truth,” said Voight. “These are the first very important qualities a president must have. He is strong, honest, and wants to bring the country back to its exceptional place, where we have been for hundreds and hundreds of years, until President Obama decided to follow his father’s footsteps and take us to socialism.”
“I’m sorry to say Speaker Gingrich may fall short in many ways,” said Voight. “Please join me to bring in Gov. Mitt Romney as the next President of the United States.”
I’ve been seeing a lot of tweets and facebook posts of people who were there and you can tell they were surprised and thrilled to see an actor show up at a rally for Mitt Romney. What’s really cool is that Jon Voight took the time to take pictures with many of the people who were in attendance at that rally. Obviously, they were even more excited to hear him give his endorsement for Mitt.
Watch a pathetic member of the Gingrich campaign try to trip up Romney-supporting Rep. Chaffetz below the fold:
