Indiana a Done Deal?
With three new polls giving Donald Trump double digit leads over rival Ted Cruz in tomorrow’s Indiana primary election, the GOP front runner may have placed a final nail in the Cruz campaigns hopes with the endorsement of legendary football coach Lou Holtz.
Holtz coached Notre Dame from 1986 to 1996. Taking over a struggling team, Holtz led the Fighting Irish to a perfect 12-0 season by 1988, earning the team wide recognition as the NCAA’s national champion. The squad went 12-1 the following year in 1989.
During Holtz’s tenure, Notre Dame posted winning seasons in 10 out of 11 years, with a losing record only in his first year in 1986.
In a video posted today on Twitter, Holtz said:
“Greetings. I’m Lou Holtz. And I wholeheartedly endorse Donald Trump as the next president of the United States. There’s nothing but winners in Indiana.”
“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. Thank you for listening.”
Holtz’s endorsement is sure to receive wide media attention in Indiana on the eve of the state’s Republican primary election, and can only help to motivate any remaining undecided voters toward supporting Trump.
