Presidential candidates in search of Tim Tebow's endorsement

Wednesday January 11th, 2012

Denver Broncos' quarterback Tim Tebow has been a major topic of conversation throughout the sports world, and now some republican politicians are trying to get a piece of the action.

The Associated Press is reporting that several candidates have contacted Tebow, seeking his endorsement for their presidential campaigns. The second-year quarterback out of Florida has declined the offers so far. "I think you have to have so much trust in who you support, just from product endorsements to endorsing a candidate because if that person or company does something (bad), it reflects on you," Tebow told the AP.
