John Elway said on Sunday that he aligns himself with the GOP, but that he doesn’t plan on running for office anytime soon.
The football Hall of Famer and executive vice president of football operations for the Denver Broncos said on “Fox News Sunday” that though he sees himself as a Republican, he’s in the “middle right.”
“I don’t believe in safety nets – obviously, we have to have some kind of safety nets – but I think my philosophy is when given the opportunity to go take advantage of that. I think that’s when you get the best out of people,” Elway said just ahead of Sunday’s Super Bowl showdown between his Broncos and the Seattle Seahawks.”So my beliefs align best with the GOP. I wouldn’t say I’m way right. I’m middle right. ”
If Congress acted more like a business and gave a little to get a little, Elway suggested it would get a lot more done.
