New Kids on the Block singer and Blue Bloods actor Donnie Wahlberg has endorsed Republican candidate (and EDM enthusiast) Marco Rubio for president. According to Rubio’s campaign site, Wahlberg said, “Even though we do not see eye to eye on every issue, I know that Marco is a man of principle who can be trusted to keep us safe and give each and every one of us a shot at the American Dream.”
Wahlberg joined Rubio at a rally in North Las Vegas this past weekend. Jeb Bush dropped out the race for the White House on Saturday, leaving Donald Trump, Ted Cruz and Rubio as the main Republican nomination contenders.
“Marco is a humble man who has not forgotten his roots, and he will fight to make sure that where you come from does not determine how far you can go,” Wahlberg continued. “We need a leader like Marco to inspire a new Republican party and unite our nation, and I am proud to support him for President.” Rubio welcomed Wahlberg to “the team” via Twitter.
