Marco Rubio Teases His Own Reveal With 'Game of Thrones' Font

Associated Press

The Florida senator is presumably entering the presidential race shortly.

Game of Thrones may seem like an ominous backdrop for a would-be presidential candidate to tease a big reveal. But that's the tack chosen by a potential Republican contender.

While Hillary Clinton opted for an email, video clip and tweet (as well as a new logo), Marco Rubio is teasing an announcement with a reference to a wildly popular HBO show that will have its season premiere on Sunday. And it's not Veep:

The "Big News Is Coming" tagline, of course, is a play on the "Winter Is Coming" refrain that's oft repeated on the show — but that usually signals that doom is on the way for characters.

Earlier Sunday, Clinton made the widely expected announcement of her candidacy, pledging in a tweet that "Everyday Americans need a champion, and I want to be that champion."

Rubio's HBO-themed tweet is only the latest tease for a "big announcement" on Monday, when the Florida senator is presumed to be throwing his own hat into the presidential campaign.

HBO did not immediately respond to a request for comment on the graphic.
