DENVER — President Barack Obama’s challenger drew a heavy hitter to his rally in Denver Monday night. That would be the Denver Broncos’ John Elway.
“Tonight, I get the opportunity to introduce to you the next President of the United States, governor Mitt Romney,” the two-time Super Bowl champion boomed out in his famous raspy baritone.
At Romney’s rally at the Wings Over the Rockies Air and Space Museum in Lowry, Elway continued to call Romney a “proven leader with the experience and background to turn around our struggling economy.”
“America needs a comeback team,” Elway, a veteran of many a fourth quarter comeback, said. “Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan are that team.”
Our Eli Stokols capitalized on that rhetoric from Elway, using it as a lead-in to a question you wanted answered.
