Last night on Fox News, after the GOP debate in Las Vegas, Rep. Michele Bachmann scored the endorsement of entertainer Wayne Newton.

During their appearance (video below), Bachmann said that Las Vegas was a great place to buy a home, in reference to Nevada's disastrous housing market and mass foreclosures.

Fox host Greta Van Susteren asked Rep. Bachmann: “So tell me where did you find Wayne Newton?” 

“Wayne was kind enough to come on. Hey, we’re in Vegas!” Bachmann yelled.

Newton explained: “I watched the entire debate, and I don’t have to tell you how proud I was of this lady because not only did she hold her own, but she kind of stood alone and I’m not talking about being female."

"I’m talking about the wonderful things and views that she has for America. I am an entertainer but first of all, I’m an American and second of all, I’m a Nevadan, and third of all, I will support this beautiful lady as long as she wants to go."

“That’s pretty good, don’t cha think, Greta?” Rep. Bachmann asked. “That’s pretty hot,” Van Susteren agreed.
