Former Presidential nominee John McCain wants to make sure Snooki maintains her tan this summer.

The Jersey Shore star (real name: Nicole Polizzi), 22, complained on Twitter, "I don't go tanning anymore because Obama put a 10 percent tax on tanning ... And I feel like he did that intentionally for us."

Snooki isn't the first reality star the Arizona senator has thrown his support behind.

After hearing Heidi Montag, 24, planned to vote for him in 2008, McCain told Joe Scarborough he never misses an episode of The Hills.
