Pawn Stars’ Rick Harrison jumps on the Marco Rubio bandwagon


Rick Harrison, the star of the wildly popular History Channel reality show Pawn Stars, has made his choice for President for 2016: Florida Senator Marco Rubio. Harrison actually voiced his support for Rubio on his pawn shop’s Facebook page in April, and since then, has held fundraisers in Las Vegas on his behalf.

Now, Harrison has penned a fundraising email for the Rubio campaign, asking folks to donate before the upcoming federal reporting deadline for political donations. “My friend Marco needs our help right now,” Harrison says in the email. “He’s just one day away from the first major fundraising deadline of the campaign. I’ve decided to PERSONALLY INVEST in Marco’s campaign. And if you watch our show, you know I know how to spot a good investment. I hope you’ll join me in financially supporting Marco’s campaign by donating now.”

Harrison even recorded a video for the Rubio campaign:
