"I got a lot of wonderful endorsements over the past year and a half. I'm grateful for each and every one f them. But I've got to say there's something special about this one. And it's a real honor in part because why he chose to endorse me. You all know what an amazing athlete he is. MVP, winner of championships... But he’s also — LeBron is also a dedicated advocate for children. (cheers and applause) This afternoon, I will be in Akron where he’s done so much for the kids in that community. It’s a deep personal commitment that he has that I share with him. We both believe every single child should have the chance to live up to his or her God given potential. I could not be prouder to have LeBron joining our team as we head into the home stretch. One thing I know — I will just say it because I know it's for sure. I hope to be elected president but I know here in Ohio LeBron will always be the king."
