Elway Reveals Why He Is a Republican

'When you're given the opportunity to [succeed,] I think that's when you get the best out of people'


Former Denver Broncos quarterback John Elway told Chris Wallace why he is a Republican on Fox News Sunday.

Elway said as a country “we are given either to chance to succeed or not succeed” and as such he prefers economic opportunity to extensive government safety nets.

The NFL Hall of Famer added he is not extremely far right and would like to see Congress take a business minded approach to legislating. “You got to give a little to get some […] and if we acted more like businessmen in that situation I believe we’d be getting a lot more done.”
