Mitt Romney picked up some beefy backing from the Country music business over the weekend.
From NewsMax, "Country Music Star Adkins to Newsmax: I'm Backing Romney":
“I want to be able to wholeheartedly support the nominee and so I have not publicly told anybody who my guy was. But it’s going to be Mitt Romney and I am going to support him 100 percent and hopefully we’ll get a Republican back in the White House,” the country music superstar told Newsmax.TV in an interview at the National Rifle Association’s convention in St. Louis.Adkins is known for entertaining the Troops overseas in Afghanistan and Iraq. He's also been a champion of individual liberties. So, much so, he's earned the respect from a famous Ron Paul supporter.
Adkins, who says he’s a “huge supporter of the NRA,” said he felt it was important to elect a GOP president.
“I don’t like the direction that Democrats want to take this country,” he said. “I’ve been a Republican since I registered to vote in 1980.”
Judge Andrew Napolitano said in an interview with Glenn Beck late last year ("TSA pat downs a violation of the Fourth Amendment?"):
Well, I had that great libertarian singer Trace Adkins on my show.
