If it were based on these videos of celebrities endorsing local candidates, the results are mixed at best.
Here are 5 Celebrities in Local Political Campaign Videos:
1. Cedric the Entertainer – Rodney Hubbard for State Senate
The best part about the Barbershop series headlines a roast for a local Missouri politician.
Impact? Rodney Hubbard lost his seat that year.
2. Macy Gray (Sean Astin and others) – Dan Adler for Congress
Could this be Macy Grays best performance since her infamous Star Spangled Banner performance?
Impact? Dan Adler only received 361 votes.
3. Mark Ruffalo – Maurice Hinchey for Congress
Impact? Maurice Hinchey was already a 9-term Congressman, so yes, he won.
4. M.C. Hammer ( & others) – Ed Lee for SF Mayor
Not only MC Hammer, but SF Giants pitcher Brian Wilson make cameos.
Impact? Who knows, the election is tomorrow.
5. Ed Asner – Marcy Winograd for Congress
Lou Grant supports ardent anti-war Dem Marcy Winograd in California
Impact? Marcy Wingrad lost.
