Democrats Seek Out Celebrities to Run for Political Office


Celebrities have the ability to greatly influence the beliefs, attitudes, and behaviors of our society.

A multi-billion dollar endorsement industry, which pitches everything from diet aids to reverse mortgages, serves as proof of the bona fide clout that celebrities possess as an adjunct to their fame.

Stars who have had the good fortune of becoming household names hold a particular advantage in being able to make a viable run for public office.

The Republican Party has had a history of successful candidates that hailed from the entertainment world. Names include the likes of California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger, California Congressman Sony Bono, California Mayor of Carmel Clint Eastwood, and the epitome of celebrity political victors President Ronald Reagan.
