Green Bay Packers legend Brett Favre wants four more years of Donald Trump. Favre officially endorsed Trump on Friday. The quarterback said he will vote “for what makes this country great.”
Favre, 51, said Trump’s vision aligns most with Favre’s “principles.”
My Vote is for what makes this country great, freedom of speech & religion, 2nd Amnd, hard working tax paying citizens, police & military. In this election, we have freedom of choice, which all should respect. For me & these principles, my Vote is for @RealDonaldTrump. #Vote ☑️🇺🇸

This is the first time Favre has officially endorsed Trump for president. It’s unclear whether Favre supported Trump in 2016.
Brett Favre could be trying to rally voters in Wisconsin
Favre’s endorsement could be his way of trying to influence voters in Wisconsin. Favre spent 16 seasons in Green Bay, and still carries a lot of clout within Wisconsin. It’s expected to be a tight race in the state, though Joe Biden may have a slight lead, according to FiveThirtyEight. Trump narrowly won Wisconsin over Hillary Clinton in 2016.
