Some Well-Known backers of Mitt Romney

By

Sure, celebrities aren’t exactly known for publicly backing conservative candidates. There probably won’t be too many Hollywood gathering for Mitt Romney like there are (quite regularly) for President Obama. But there exist some brave souls willing to risk losing invites to all the cocktail parties and back Mitt Romney in 2012. We take a look at some of those actors, musicians, and other entertainers here.

Clint Eastwood - "I think the country needs a boost… Now more than ever do we need Gov. Romney. I'm going to be voting for him."

Chuck Norris - "Truthfully, I believe that Mitt has the skills and organization to defeat Obama and stop his fundamental transformation of America. We all know what four more years of increased socialistic decisions would do to our country."

John Voight - Voight regularly appears on behalf of Mitt Romney on many news outlets and was a popular figure at the 2012 Republican convention. "I think because of Gov. Mitt Romney's great talents, his great compassion, his great gifts of leadership, he's going to win this election... The people are going to become aware of these qualities."

Kid Rock - "Born Free" is the official theme song of the Romney campaign. Kid Rock first rocked out with Romney at a campaign rally outside of Detroit in February 2012. He also performed at the 2012 Republican convention.

Trace Adkins - Adkins unveiled a blue-collar anthem at the the GOP convention. Taking aim at Kid Rock's preferred song status? "I am going to support [Romney] 100 percent and hopefully we’ll get a Republican back in the White House."

Kelsey Grammer - Former Cheers and Frasier star. "I think he'd be very good at [being president]. He's a clear thinker. He's a kind man, you know, and he makes a lot of sense."

Olympians - A handful of Olympians also came out in support of Mitt Romney. Figure skater Kristi Yamaguchi, speed racer Derek Parra, Jim Shea, figure skater Scott Hamilton, skeet shooter Kim Rhode, speed skater Dan Jansen, and 1980 "Miracle on Ice" hockey captain Mike Eruzione.
