Do you remember Ross Perot? He’s the Texas billionaire that ran for president in 1992 and 1996 and has been out of the political spotlight since. He has come forward and endorsed Mitt Romney for the presidency, saying the U.S. is on an unstable course under our current leadership. In 1992, Perot ran one of the most successful third party campaigns in history when he ran against then president George H. Bush and Bill Clinton, receiving 19 per cent of the vote.

Perot believes the United States is losing its position in the world and we’re on an unstable course with our standard of living at home.  Perot, a billionaire, and still one of the richest men in the world is backing Romney, saying his experience, intelligence and integrity may turns things around. The announcement came in the Des Moines Register in Iowa, where he earned more than 18% of the vote in 1992. Perot commented of several things including cuts to the defense budget, out of control debt and runaway domestic spending.

The Perot endorsement come weeks after Ex-President Bill Clinton endorsed President Barack Obama for re-election and hosted a Twitter chat Monday before the Tuesday debate. According to the latest polls, the presidential race is the closest, this month, than it has been in since the race began. Some polls show the race dead-even while others show the President ahead by a slight margin. Election Day is Tuesday, November 6th, don’t forget to vote!
