Chris Wallace interviewed former quarterback and current operations executive for the Denver Broncos this Sunday before the Super Bowl. They mostly talked football until Wallace revealed that Elway is a Republican, and asked him why.
Elway said as a country “we are given either to chance to succeed or not succeed” and as such he prefers economic opportunity to extensive government safety nets.
He also said he is not “way right” but is more “middle right” and would like to see more compromise from Congress like you see in the business world. I would add that the same goes for the president, but I don’t think Elway was there to talk politics.
