“Now more than ever do we need Gov. Romney,” Eastwood told supporters attending the function. “I’m going to be voting for him.”
“He must made my day,” Romney said, borrowing a line from one of Eastwood’s “Dirty Harry” movies. “What a guy.”
The 82-year-old Eastwood said Eastwood would restore a “decent tax system” to the nation “so that there’s a fairness and people are not pitted against one another as who’s paying taxes and who isn’t.”
While Hollywood’s more liberal establishment usually line up behind Democrats, Eastwood becomes the latest in a growing list of celebrities who publicly back Romney, including actor Jon Voight and singer Kid Rock. A campaign source tells Capitol Hill Blue that other high-profile endorsements are coming.
