Republican presidential candidate Senator Marco Rubio recently revealed an interest in EDM. During a TMZ interview, the former Speaker of the Florida House of Representatives briefly discussed his recent musical inclinations. 

"You know, electronic music, I've gotten into it a little bit with David Guetta and all that," he explained. "Axwell /\ IngrossoSwedish House Mafia, those guys. and I'm still a Nicki Minaj fan. She's very talented."

However, as much as the presidential hopeful might perceive value in associating his name with a burgeoning youth culture movement such as EDM, his sentiments may not be reciprocated. After Rubio walked off the stage of his presidential campaign kickoff rally to the Axwell /\ Ingrosso track "Something New," the duo released a statement asking the campaigners to stop. "Axwell /\ Ingrosso didn't give permission for this song to be used and don't want to be affiliated with a particular party during the upcoming presidential race," the statement read.
