“I wholeheartedly endorse Donald Trump as the next president of the United States. There are nothing but winners in Indiana,” Holtz said in a video posted on Twitter.
“The main reason I’m endorsing him: I’ve played his golf course, I’ve stayed in his hotel. He does nothing but go first class in everything. He wants this country to be first class as well.”
The Hill reports:
The endorsement comes ahead of the Indiana primary on Tuesday, where Trump is polling ahead of his two competitors. According to the RealClearPolitics average of polls, Trump has a 9.3-point lead over rival Ted Cruz.
It’s not the first high-profile endorsement from a sports figure in the state. Trump was also endorsed by former Indiana University basketball coach Bobby Knight.
