Obama Capitalizing on Hollywood Allies

Former President Bill Clinton will fundraise for Obama this summer.

May 22, 2012

In its latest display of star power, the Obama campaign announced that it is holding two contests for supporters this summer, one involving a chance to meet former President Bill Clinton and the other a chance to dine with actress Sarah Jessica Parker of "Sex and the City" fame.

The contests are the latest examples of Obama's ability to draw celebrities from Hollywood and Washington into his campaign.

George Clooney held a fundraiser for Obama in his California home earlier this month, raising about $15 million and setting a record for a single campaign event. Roughly 150 actors attended, including Robert Downey Jr., Barbra Streisand and Jack Black.

 

Tom Hanks showed his support when he narrated a documentary released by the Obama campaign earlier this year. Clinton too has appeared in the Obama campaign's long-form ads.

The winner of the competition will meet Clinton and Obama at an event in New York on June 4. Two weeks later, another winner will attend a fundraiser held at the New York home of Parker and her husband, actor Matthew Broderick, according to The Wall Street Journal.
