Peter Schiff garners endorsment from Steve Forbes


Peter Schiff, Ron Paul's former economic adviser, president of EuroPacific Capital, and candidate for Senate in Connecticut, garnered the endorsement of Forbes magazine founder Steve Forbes.

Schiff is commonly known as one of the few people to predict the economic crash back in 2006.

Here's the press release from the Schiff for Connecticut Senate:

Steve Forbes, a staunch defender of the free-market and one-time Presidential candidate, today endorsed Peter Schiff's bid for U.S. Senate in Connecticut.

"I have known Peter Schiff for several years. He has a deep knowledge of finance and economics," said Steve Forbes. "He had long warned of the troubles we now face. As your citizen-Senator he will be a fierce fighter for cutting spending, cutting taxes and repealing Obamacare."

Mr. Forbes has only endorsed three other candidates for U.S. Senate running in the 2010 election cycle: John McCain, Marco Rubio and Rand Paul.

"Steve Forbes understands the massive strains the American economy is under, and to have his backing and trust means a great deal to me," said Peter Schiff. "We need to restore free-market principles, get government out of the way and put people back to work. Steve's understanding of my vision, coupled with his backing, will help me get to Washington to make sure we grow the economy, not the government."

Steve Forbes is a true American hero, and his support of Peter Schiff (schiffforsenate.com) goes to show where the true conservative support lies in this Senate race.

Linda McMahon can buy a lot of attention with her millions, but Schiff has the grassroots support, including that of the tea-party movement.

I can understand Schiff, Rubio and Rand but what the hell is the ultimate Rino, McCain, doing on Forbes list?
