If you're waiting to decide which candidate will get your precious vote in the presidential election in November, take note that a millionaire who wears hats and drives trucks and interviews people who clean up dirty things is supporting Mitt Romney. Or don't take note. Either way.
Via Cleveland.com comes news that Mike Rowe, he of "Dirty Jobs" fame, will join Mitt Romney in Bedford Heights Wednesday for a campaign stop. [Insert joke about "Dirty Jobs" and mud-slinging political campaigns here.] So, take that, Obama and your darling sweethearts like Martin Sheen and Jay-Z. We got a real man on the job here over on the GOP side. Oh, but it could have been the other way around.
Romney's campaign announced the Rowe endorsement late Monday when confirming Romney's Cleveland-area itinerary for the final day of a two-day bus tour through battleground Ohio.
Rowe made headlines this month for an open letter he wrote to Romney, seeking a "national conversation" on skilled labor and "about what we value in the workforce." Rowe opened the letter by pledging to vote for Romney if he read the whole thing. A campaign aide later tweeted a photo of Romney reading the letter.
(Rowe closed the letter by saying he wrote to President Barack Obama four years ago but received no response.)
Sucks to be you, Mr. President. You had your chance to have the trucker hats fighting for hope and change. Whoops.
