The rocker gives Vice President hopeful Tim Kaine some musical support as Ted Nugent has strong words for Donald Trump voters.

Rocker Jon Bon Jovi gave Vice President hopeful Tim Kaine a big boost in Florida on Saturday (05Nov16) by joining the harmonica-playing politician at a campaign rally.

As Democrat Hillary Clinton's running mate prepared for the general election on Tuesday (08Nov16), he was joined in St. Petersburg by the Bon Jovi singer, who is out promoting the band's new album, This House is Not For Sale.

The rock star performed an acoustic set that included Who Says You Can’t Go Home and Livin’ on a Prayer, while Kaine joined him on harmonica for You Give Love a Bad Name.

Meanwhile, Ted Nugent was on the campaign trail with Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump, telling fans at a rally in Sterling Heights, Michigan, "There’s not many things that would get me out of a deer camp in Michigan in November: God, family, country, Michigan and Donald Trump for President."

Nugent, who performed Fred Bear and Never Stop Believing, made waves by grabbing his crotch and telling the crowd, "I’ve got your blue state right here!"

He then warned voters, "Each and every one of you have only 24 hours to convince the numb nuts that you know, that you can’t vote for criminals, you can’t vote for liars, you can’t vote for scam artists."

Meanwhile, Bon Jovi is expected to join Bruce Springsteen and others at Hillary Clinton’s final rally, which will be held at Independence Hall in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on Monday night (07Nov16), on the eve of the election.

The rockers will be joined by former president Bill Clinton, current U.S. leader Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama, and Vice President Joe Biden at the event.
