It's no secret that Movie Stars are one of the key constituents of President Barack Obama. They massively supported him in the general election of 2008, and in a followup, it's no different this time around. It's definitely a good news for Obama Camp.
Since April, big-screen stars George Clooney, Will Ferrell and Tom Hanks have all contributed to Obama's re-election campaign, as have Gwyneth Paltrow, Jennifer Garner, Michael Keaton and Eddie Murphy.
Pres. Obama has two main donation streams: Obama For America (OFA) fund and the Obama Victory Fund (OVF). OFA is the direct campaign account ( i.e. when you donate through BarackObama.com, your money goes to OFA, and donations are limited for $2500 ). OVF is a Super Pac, and has a donation limit of $35,800.
Big Hollywood names like Ferrell, Paltrow, Clooney, Hanks, Smith, DeGeneres, Murphy, Taylor, Spielberg, Glazer, Katzenberg and Joyner all gave $35,800 to the OVF. Lynch and Pierce each gave $10,000. President Obama and many other 2012 presidential candidates will continue to take trips to L.A. for fundraising parties.
Speaking of donations, if you haven't donated to our blog, Obama'12 Blog, please take a minute to do so. Thanks in advance.
