Top Steelers leaders remain in the Barack Obama camp.
Former team chairman Dan Rooney is expected to resign as ambassador to Ireland at some point this year and return to the States to campaign for Obama as he did in 2008. Mike Tomlin -- who became emotional upon talking to the nation's first African-American president after the team's 2009 Super Bowl win -- is also a supporter.
FEC records show both men and their wives last year gave the Obama campaign the full $5,000 allowed under campaign finance law. An Open Secrets search shows Rooney and Tomlin also gave $30,000 each to the Democratic National Committee in November.
