GOP hopefuls pray for Tebow endorsement

Tebow is wise to stay out of this because it could truly hurt his image with his fans. Oprah can tell Tim all about that! He needs to use the same wisdom when it comes to choosing the woman in his life. - Reggie

Tim Tebow is already the hottest property in professional sports, and now Republican presidential candidates are lining up for the blessing of the Denver Broncos quarterback.

The “Mile High Messiah” told The Associated Press on Sunday that more than one of the GOP hopefuls has asked for his public support.

He declined their offers, and also wouldn’t tell the AP which candidates had reached out to him for an endorsement.

“I think you have to have so much trust in who you support, just from product endorsements to endorsing a candidate,” Tebow said, “because if that person or company does something [bad], it reflects on you.”

Tebow is staying mum, making the identity of his Republican political suitors the inside-the-beltway guessing game of the week.

And there is no shortage of contenders who seem to be training for the Tebow caucuses.

During a Dec. 15 debate in Sioux City, Iowa, Texas Gov. Rick Perry noted that many experts “said Tim Tebow wasn’t going to be a very good NFL quarterback. … And he won two national championships, and that looked pretty good. We were the national champions in job creation back in Texas. And so, am I ready for the next level? Let me tell you, I hope I am the Tim Tebow of the Iowa caucuses.”
