Donnie Wahlberg is endorsing Marco Rubio because he feels the Republican presidential candidate has the right stuff. Wahlberg’s words of support were released by Rubio’s campaign on Sunday.

In a statement, the New Kids On The Block singer 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 added, “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. 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.”

As Gossip Cop reported, the right-leaning actor and singer from Massachusetts previously expressed support for Carly Florina, who has since dropped out of the race. In August, Wahlberg tweeted, “Watching @CarlyFiorina on #MeetThePress,” adding, “She is a strong human being and a strong candidate for President in 2016!”

While Wahlberg has now publicly endorsed Rubio, there’s still no word yet on who Joey McIntyre is throwing his support behind.
