O’Rourke thanked Scott as well as former football player Arian Foster in an Instagram post.
O’Rourke’s campaign, despite lagging behind Ted Cruz, has received a ton of attention and support from celebrities.
Jimmy Kimmel and Rosie O’Donnell have donated thousands of dollars to his campaign, as have Chelsea Handler and Sarah Jessica Parker.
This plays into Hollywood’s larger role of influencing races across the nation in the upcoming midterms in support of Democrats.
According to one report, 99.7 percent of donations from Hollywood executives have gone to Democratic candidates or pro-Democrat PACs.
