Betty White stars in a newly released campaign ad for Congressman Howard Berman. Along with her Hot in Cleveland co-star Wendie Malick, White touts Berman’s record as an animal advocate as a reason to vote for him — and because “he has very nice blue eyes.”
The Democrat, also known as the “Hollywood Congressman,” represents California’s 28th Congressional District, which covers parts of the San Fernando Valley. Now in his 15th term, Berman faces a heated re-election bid against fellow Democratric Congressman Brad Sherman, due to redistricting.
Berman has collected large donations from Hollywood, and Betty White now has added herself to the list of celeb supporters including Tom Hanks, Bette Midler, Jeffrey Abrams and Kate Capshaw. He told Politico that support from the entertainment industry would account for around 20 percent of his financing in the race.
The congressman also picked up an endorsement yesterday from the Los Angeles Times.
