Actress Stacey Dash defended her support for Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney after she received a barrage of Twitter attacks for her decision.
She said in a televised interview Tuesday night that she had since spoken with vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan and he had high praise for the Clueless star.
‘He said thank you so much for your support, and that I was brave and that they support me and I thought that was so generous and kind, lovely,’ Ms Dash told CNN’s Piers Morgan.
