Condoleezza Rice grew up a big fan of the Cleveland Browns, and was even once linked to their head coaching vacancy.

That turned out to be fake news, but there’s nothing fake about Rice becoming part-owner of the Denver Broncos. They actually came out and announced it.

The majority owners of the Broncos are now the Walton-Penner family, which purchased the franchise for $4.65 billion last month.

“We’re pleased to welcome former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice to our ownership group,” Rob Walton said in a statement. “A highly respected public servant, accomplished academic and corporate leader, Secretary Rice is well known as a passionate and knowledgeable football fan who has worked to make the sport stronger and better.

“She is the daughter of a football coach and served on the inaugural College Football Playoff Committee. She moved to Denver with her family when she was 12 years old and went on to attend the University of Denver for both college and graduate school. Her unique experience and extraordinary judgment will be a great benefit to our group and the Broncos organization.”

Rice was Secretary of State from 2005-09 under former President George W. Bush. She was then selected as one of the 13 members of the inaugural College Football Playoff Committee in 2013, holding that role until the end of 2016.

“It is an honor to be part of this ownership group,” Rice said. “Football has been an integral part of my life since the moment it was introduced to me, and I am thrilled to be a part of the Broncos organization today. I spent much of my younger years in Denver, so to be able to combine my love of the game with my love for this great city and team is an adventure of a lifetime and a great opportunity.”

Rice grew up in the Denver area after moving there at the age of 12, graduating from the University of Denver. She has been a member of the Republican party since 1982.

  1. That any conservative would want to be on the View is beyond me…why not just stand up there and let them throw rocks at you?!!! They in NO way try to accomodate anyone who thinks differently than they do. They are led in this harrassment by Joyless Behar and followed closely by Whoopi Goldbert!!! Why ABC puts up with this kind of treatment of one of their panel by two people on the SAME panel is beyond me!!! I never watch this show any longer, only have to respond when they publish something like this as if a conservative would EVER be welcome on that show. This is a full fledged lie and ABC should be ashamed for acting as if it is anything different!!!

    • How is that any different that Fox News runs its shows? The difference is that the View is one hour a day, Fox Fake News is on 24 hours a day. And how did you get from her becoming an owner of a football team to the show the View?

      • Fox News welcomes liberals with open arms. They have never turned one down to interview. Pretty sure Stacey and Juan are not republicans.
