Clint Eastwood has given a public endorsement for Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney at a private event in Sun Valley.
Eastwood told the crowd at the fundraiser, “Now more than ever do we need Governor Romney. I’m going to be voting for him…”
Eastwood also added to the room full of Romney backers that the presidential hopeful would restore “a decent tax system that we need badly… so that there’s a fairness and people are not pitted against one another as who’s paying taxes and who isn’t.”
The actor later told the Associated Press, “I think the country needs a boost.”
Romey will square off against Barack Obama in the election this coming November.
