Bob Barker Bats For Florida Candidate: ‘The Choice Is Right’ (VIDEO)

A candidate in the special election to replace late Rep. Bill Young (R-FL) will get a boost Thursday from former game show host Bob Barker.

“Folks, when you get to be as young as I am, you call it like you see it,” the “The Price is Right” host said in a 30-second spot for Republican lobbyist David Jolly. He also touted the candidate’s work with Young to help veterans and support seniors and children. 

“Because with Jolly, the choice is right,” Baker said.

The ad is scheduled to air for Florida viewers during Thursday’s episode of “The Price Is Right,” when Barker makes a special appearance for his 90th birthday, according to Roll Call
