SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) – Porn star Jenna Jameson chose a familiar stage to make her endorsement for the 2012 presidential election Thursday night. At a San Francisco strip club, the former adult actress and stage performer said she was ready for a Romney presidency.

“I’m very looking forward to a Republican being back in office,” Jameson said while sipping champagne in a VIP room at Gold Club in the city’s South of Market neighborhood. “When you’re rich, you want a Republican in office.”

The Mitt Romney endorsement appears to be a departure from previous political leanings displayed by Jameson. The 38-year-old entrepreneur has previously appeared in People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals campaigns, and was a Hillary Clinton supporter in 2008, according to published reports.
