Lee Iaccoca Endroses Richarson

Lee Iaccoca, former Chrysler CEO and Ford President, has announced he is endorsing Democrat Bill Richardson for President. Iaccoca is one of Richardson's biggest endorsers in his uphill battle for the Presidency.

Iaccoca leans Democratic, but endorsed Bush in 2000 and Republican Gubernatorial candidate Dick DeVos in Michigan in 2006. He did endorse John Kerry in 2004.

Iaccoca was considered the frontrunner for John Heinz III's Senate seat from Pennsylvania after he was killed in a plane crash in 1991. Democratic Governor Bob Casey wanted to appoint Iaccoca as a Democrat, but he turned down the job.

Iaccoca says Richardson's positions of health care, education and Iraq. He also says he "just plain likes the guy"

For the record, I have also endorsed Richardson.
