He’s Not a Cop, but He Plays One on TV and He Just Endorsed Someone for President

During the CNBC GOP Debate in October, actor and former member of the hit boy band New Kids on the Block Donnie Wahlberg caught a lot of flack from fans after he tweeted his support for Republican presidential candidate and former Hewlett-Packard CEO Cary Fiorina.

With Fiorina no longer in the race, Wahlberg has thrown himself behind a different candidate and he made that perfectly known on Valentine’s Day, then expanded on it during the GOP Debate in  South Carolina before the SC Primary. He then solidified his endorsement with a statement released by his candidate’s campaign.

On Valentine’s Day, Wahlberg tweeted which candidates he’d like to see in various positions, including the presidency.

That’s right. Donnie Wahlberg, known by many as Danny Reagan on the hit ABC Show Blue Bloods, wants Marco Rubio to be president. He still hasn’t given up on Carly, who he would like to see as vice-president.

After taking a break from political tweets for a few days, Wahlberg was back at it on the night of the GOP debate in South Carolina.

In a statement released by the Rubio campaign, Wahlberg said, “We need a leader like Marco to inspire a new Republican party and unite our nation.”

Marco Rubio no doubt this helps him gain more traction after barely edging out Texas Senator Ted Cruz for second place by 0.2% in South Carolina despite having the endorsement of all of the top politicians in the Palmetto State, including Governor Nikki Haley, Senator Tim Scott , and Rep. Trey Gowdy .

Prior to the Iowa Caucus, Rubio had a 3-2-1 plan. His goal was to finish in third place in Iowa, second in New Hampshire, and first in South Carolina. His fifth-place finish in New Hampshire threw that plan off and it was further derailed when he just barely finished in second place in South Carolina.
