In a statement sent to CNN, Megadeth frontman Dave Mustaine on Thursday denied endorsing former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum for President of the United States.

“Contrary to how some people have interpreted my words, I have not endorsed any presidential candidate,” he said. “I hope to see a Republican in the White House. I’ve seen good qualities in all the candidates but by no means have made my choice yet.”

Mustaine told Music Radar on Tuesday that he was “completely oblivious as to who Rick Santorum was, but when the dude went home to be with his daughter when she was sick, that was very commendable.”

After setting the record straight, CNN host Andersonn Cooper noted Mustaine’s belief in the devil.
