(Associated Press) Clint Eastwood just made Mitt Romney’s day.

The Oscar-winning director and longtime movie star says he’s endorsing the Republican presidential candidate.

Eastwood tells The Associated Press that he’s backing Romney because, in Eastwood’s words, “I think the country needs a boost.”

Eastwood was among those attending a Romney fundraiser Friday night in Sun Valley, Idaho.
