After a lifetime of voting for and supporting Democrats and even declining appointment to the U.S. Senate from a Democratic governor Lee Iacocca Thursday endorsed Republican Mitt Romney for president.
The blessings of the onetime Chrysler chairman are expected to help Romney in two highly competitive states: Pennsylvania, where the 88-year-old Iacocca was born and raised and is still widely respected, and in Michigan, where Iacocca rose to become a major figure in the auto industry and won international praise for cobbling together the government-backed loans that saved Chrysler in 1980.
Iacocca, who now lives in California, issued a statement saying he backed Romney because of his dozens of years of experiences in the public and private sectors and because the GOP nominee has a plan that will enable a stronger America.

Good news but I thought he was dead.
That ain’t gonna hurt Romney.
Lee is alive and well, and living in Bel Air (Los Angeles) California.
Many scraped every penny they had and bought Chrysler Stock at $3 bucks/ share and have net Worth's in the 7 digit area.
They are getting old, and their is the potential of inter-generational wealth transfer. Perhaps they will tell their kids, nieces nephew's etc. of what Lee is really speaking about here. Their future to get a job and perhaps their inheritance.
But more importantly Lee now see's this guy as a phony poser, that doesn't well with his generation, that is for sure...
I expect this to have some legs here in Michigan....
But Iacocca is a whole nother matter. Iacocca has gravitas. Everyone should know and respect the father of the Mustang and leader of the restoration of the Statue of Liberty — that prickly old fart, written in the most respectful way! Prickly is what happens around 60!
From one turnaround artist to another! GOOD!!!!
Another Romney democrat.
This needs to be ad to be run in Michigan and Pa
