According to a report by Politico reporter Caitlin McDevitt:

“It was meant to be a message about just about job growth and the spirit of America,” Eastwood added. “I think all politicians will agree with it.”

Eastwood reiterated that he’s “not supporting any politician at this time” and added that “if any Obama or any other politician wants to run with the spirit of that ad, go for it.”
