Former California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger is trying to pump up the presidential hopes of Ohio Gov. John Kasich. The 68-year-old former “Terminator” star took to Snapchat to endorse the GOP candidate and appeal to voters in a much younger demographic.

“I want John Kasich to be the next nominee of the Republicans and also to be the next president of the United States,” Schwarzenegger said via the social platform on Sunday.

Kasich, seated next to the action film hero, simply replied to the camera, “Thank you, Arnold. Love you, man.”

Schwarzenegger, who served two terms as the Republican governor of California from 2003-2011, was stumping for Kasich in his battleground state on Sunday. In videos and photos posted on Kasich’s Twitter feed, Schwarzenegger can be seen trying to fire up the crowd at a rally, relying on his Hollywood muscle to make his point.

“He kicked some serious butt,” Schwarzenegger said. “He was an action hero when he went to Washington. And then he became governor of the great state of Ohio, and once again he was the action hero.”

Also Sunday, Democratic hopeful Hillary Clinton tried her hand at a social platform where she hadn’t previously spent any time. Clinton jumped on Reddit prior to her evening debate with Bernie Sanders in Flint, Mich., to appeal to younger voters who have been leaning toward the Vermont senator.

According to Mashable, Clinton’s Reddit profile was created nine days ago. Her message Sunday simply read, “Hello! This is my first time on Reddit — as you probably could have guessed! — but I wanted to drop in and thank you so much for everything you’re doing.”
