A man known to millions of TV viewers for his ability to judge value has just made his pick for president because of his favorite candidate’s values when it comes to policies that are pro-business. Rick Harrison, the head honcho of the hit show Pawn Stars, says that he hopes Republican Sen. Marco Rubio will be the next President of the United States.
A vocal critic of President Obama, Harrison appeared on Fox and Friends Friday morning to make official his endorsement of Rubio, whose campaign was quick to post the video of the interview on YouTube. Harrison’s pick was not altogether a surprise, given that he had announced several days ago that he would soon host a birthday party fundraiser for the GOP presidential hopeful.
In the Fox and Friends interview with host Steve Doocy, Harrison acknowledged that “when you endorse a Republican, usually it’s suicide,” since so many in the entertainment world throw their weight behind Democrats.
