One day after Packers cornerback Charles Woodson spoke at a Barack Obama campaign stop in the Green Bay suburb of Ashwaubenon on Thursday, perhaps the most famous living former Packer stumped on behalf of Obama’s opponent in the upcoming presidential election.
Former Packers quarterback Bart Starr, the MVP of Super Bowls I and II, spoke at a Mitt Romney campaign event on Friday at State Fair Park in Milwaukee.
Benjamin Sparks, the Wisconsin communications director at Romney for President, quotes Starr as saying in a tweet…
Bart Starr: “Mitt been successful in every endeavor he has pursued, and as President, he will continue that remarkable level of success.”

Even Wisconsin Republican governor Scott Walker took to Twitter to mention meeting Starr backstage before the event.
Wisconsin is viewed as a key battleground in Tuesday’s upcoming general election where the division between liberals and conservatives is thought to be close.
