Dorchester native Donnie Wahlberg announced that he is endorsing Republican presidential candidate Marco Rubio in his run for the White House.

The former New Kids on the Block member said he believes Rubio can unite Republicans.

Wahlberg, who currently co-owns the Wahlburgers restaurant chain with his brothers Mark and Paul, previously supported Carly Fiorina before she ended her campaign.
