From our good friend Brian McClintock over at sportsmenvote.com:
_Mitt Romney was campaigning in Alabama with Jeff Foxworthy when he said: “I am looking forward to going hunting with you sometime.” Romney joked to the comedian during an appearance in Mobile, Ala. “And you can actually show me which end of the rifle to point.”
_Romney’s campaign says that he does own two shotguns, and he purchased both of them after 2008. And during a debate earlier this year, Romney said that he is “not a serious hunter, but I must admit — I guess I enjoy the sport and when I get invited, I’m delighted to be able to go hunting.”
Foxworthy is not the first outdoors celebrity to endorse Romney. Ted Nugent announced his support of Romney after a “long heart & soul conversation” with the candidate. As did Rob Keck, the conservation director for Bass Pro Shops and former CEO of the National Wild Turkey Federation.
