U.S. Senate candidate–and former Dallas Mayor–Tom Leppert scored some endorsements from former Dallas Cowboys greats. In POLITICO’s Morning Score Tuesday, Troy Aikman, Roger Staubach and others are coming out in support of Leppert.


“As a businessman, Tom went the extra mile and made the hard calls in order to grow companies and create jobs," Aikman writes. "As mayor of Dallas, Tom helped turn around the city by making tough decisions that weren’t always popular. In the NFL we call that leadership, and it’s exactly what we need in Washington.”

Staubach, Cliff Harris, Daryl Johnston and Lee Roy Jordan are also backing Leppert.
