If I were running for anything the last person I would want endorsing me is a convicted rapist known for biting ears off his opponents.
STRONGSVILLE, Ohio // U.S. Senate candidate Michael S. Steele garnered support from an unlikely source Monday -- former heavyweight boxing champion Mike Tyson.
At the news conference in Ohio, where he will return to the ring Friday night, Tyson wore a white-and-blue "Steele for U.S. Senate" T-shirt as he posed for photos with fans and signed autographs.
Mike Shared his expert knowledge of politics with the press:
Tyson said he used to believe black Republicans were "sellouts," but he said he changed his mind after researching the Maryland lieutenant governor.
Mike's epiphany that led him to support a Republican also leads him to believe it is now ok to fight women.
At a news conference at an Italian restaurant, Tyson said he would likely go just four rounds and that future stops on the tour might include bouts with women, possibly professional boxer Ann Wolfe.
When asked if he was joking about fighting women, Tyson said, "I'm very serious."
