Some Georgian voters were surprised last week when they opened their doors to find the comedy Will Ferrell campaign for the state’s democratic candidates.
The “Anchorman” actor went door to encourage people in Persian state to vote for Democratic Governor Stacey Abrams in the middle of the election while recruiting college students to volunteer for their campaign.
A video published on Stacey Abram’s Facebook page on Friday shows that Ferrell shared stickers for her campaign at Kennesaw State University.
“We will win by knocking on the doors”, Ferrell can be heard to tell the students in the video. “All doors.”
Ferrell has been a prominent democrat for many years. He approved late Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) In the presidential election in 201
6 before switching his support to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
His wife, Viveca Paulin-Ferrell, told the Hollywood Reporter earlier this month that the couple planned to take out the vote in Georgia for Abrams, whose race against Georgia’s Foreign Minister Brian Kemp (R) has been carefully watched at national level.
“We continue to ask us, how can we help? What can we do locally in California? Will we hit the doors?” Said Paulin-Ferrell. “So we will knock on Stacey Abrams doors. You never know in Hollywood if it helps or hurts, but we try to get the vote and push people to the polls.”
