BOSTON, MA --Donald Trump is bragging that he has the backing of two of New England's biggest sports stars.
The GOP nominee says at a Manchester, New Hampshire, rally that New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady called him today to say he'd voted for him.
He also claims he received a "the most beautiful" letter from Bill Belichick, the Patriots head coach, congratulating him, wishing him luck Tuesday, and commending him for the way he'd handled "an unbelievable negative and slanted media."
"By the way, is there a better reference than Tom Brady and Bill Belichick?" he later asked the crowd. "I don't think so."
Brady told Boston's WEEI-FM Monday morning that he hadn't voted yet. Early voting in Massachusetts ended Friday.
