An Oscar-winning actor and director have endorsed Republican Mitt Romney in the presidential race and I know and you know who –he is Dirty Harry Clint Eastwood.
The actor director attended a Romney fundraiser in Sun Valley, Idaho, said to have raise over $2m (£1.29m). Eastwood said he was endorsing the Republican because the country needs a boost somewhere.
Last February Eastwood starred in a Chrysler Superbowl ad, Halftime in America, triggering debate over whether he supported President Barack Obama. At the time, Eastwood had said he was not endorsing either candidate and he told Fox News that he was certainly not politically affiliated with Mr Obama.
On Friday Mr Romney said of Eastwood's endorsement: "He just made my day. What a guy."
