Ross Perot, the businessman who mounted the last major challenge to the two-party political system, said Tuesday he is backing Mitt Romney for president this year.
Mr. Perot's 1992 campaign elevated the budget deficit to the forefront of politics, and six years later the federal government notched its first surplus in decades.
"At stake is nothing less than our position in the world, our standard of living at home and our constitutional freedoms," Mr. Perot said.
