In news that may even be bigger than Ricky Martin's endorsement of Hillary Clinton, John McCain was able to announce a major score on Monday: Reggaeton musician Daddy Yankee is a McCain man.

The musician, best known for his hit "Gasolina," appeared with McCain in Phoenix to give his endorsement in person -- you can watch video of the event below. The two had met and spoken earlier this summer.

And yes, for the record, the headline on this post is sarcastic.
