The 10th Democratic Presidential debate’s just moments away from kicking off and a long list of celebs are already backing their horse before the first issue is raised on stage.
We did a little digging ahead of Tuesday’s South Carolina debate, and Federal Election Commission filings reveal one candidate flexed his muscles most … when it came to celebrity donations in January — Pete Buttigieg:
– Jesse Tyler Ferguson ($2,800)
– Chloe Grace Moretz ($500)
– Thomas Lennon ($500)
He got another $3,000, BTW, from Thomas last year.
As for frontrunner, Sen. Bernie Sanders:
– Simon Helberg ($1,500)
– Rashida Jones ($1,000)
– Danny DeVito ($100)
Danny’s a serious Bernie Bro too … he also gave him $2,700 last year and even appears in one of his campaign ads.
Repping for Sen. Elizabeth Warren:
– Sally Field ($1,000)
– Lily Tomlin ($275)
– William Baldwin ($200)
– Yvette Brown ($328.56)
Honorable mention: Adam Scott and Elizabeth Banks didn’t plunk down anything in January, but each donated $2,800 to Warren’s campaign in December.
Not to be forgotten, Joe Biden got donations from Jean Smart ($340) and Josh Gad ($250) — while Sen. Amy Klobuchar got some love from Sarah Jessica Parker ($250).
