Reporter for The Daily Caller, Nicholas Ballasy, stopped Grammy award-winning singer-songwriter Barry Manilow in Washington D.C. yesterday to ask him a few questions about his visit. Manilow was on Capital Hill speaking about atrial fibrillation, a heart disease that affects over 2 million Americans, including Manilow, who has fought the disease for 15 years.
Ballasy then asked Manilow about his support of Ron Paul in 2007. Manilow contributed to Ron Paul’s campaign then and still supports him now.
“I like him. I like what he says, I do. I like what he says. I think he’s solid,” said Manilow, who confirmed to The Daily Caller in an interview at the Capitol on Thursday that he contributed to Paul’s last campaign for president.
“I agree with just about everything he says. What can I tell you?” the 68-year-old Manilow added.
