Former New York Yankees star Alex Rodriguez and singer/songwriter Jennifer Lopez want you to get out and vote. Lopez and Rodriguez spoke with presidential nominee Joe Biden and his wife Dr. Jill Biden about some of the issues affecting Latinos as the 2020 Presidential election approaches.
The conversation, which Rodriguez posted on Twitter, runs roughly five minutes. In it, Lopez and Rodriguez ask Biden how he plans to attack coronavirus, and express concerns over how the Latino community has been hit hard by the virus.
Jen & I are so excited to vote this year. Your voice counts, your vote matters. Our hispanic community, our family, needs to stay together. Please get out there & vote!— Alex Rodriguez (@AROD) October 16, 2020

While Lopez and Rodriguez don’t explicitly say, “I’m going to vote for Joe Biden” in the clip, both tweets sent out by Rodriguez include the VOTE hashtag and tag both Joe and Jill Biden. The link in both tweets takes you to makeaplan.com, which shows you how, when and where you can vote in the Nov. 3 election.
Alex Rodriguez supported Hillary Clinton in 2016 election
Rodriguez’s endorsement of Biden shouldn’t come as a major surprise considering he donated to Hillary Clinton’s campaign in 2016, according to CBS Sports. Rodriguez reportedly gave $2,700 to Clinton’s campaign in 2016.
It’s unclear whether Rodriguez now supports Democrats or if he’s merely against President Donald Trump. When Rodriguez played for the Yankees in 2007, he donated to Rudy Giuliani’s campaign. Giuliani is a Republican.
