If there’s any state where coastal elite meddling will cause voters to bristle, it’s the Lone Star State.
If you’re running for Senate in Texas, coastal celebrity support ain’t gonna do jack to get you over the finish line.
Nevertheless, Sarah Jessica Parker is the latest celebrity to publicly show support for Rep. Beto O’Rourke, the Democratic candidate running against incumbent Sen. Ted Cruz.
Parker was photographed wearing a Beto campaign button at a film festival in New York City, according to the The El Paso Times.
The actress, famous for her role as Carrie Bradshaw in “Sex and the City,” was photographed sporting an O’Rourke campaign button at a film festival in New York.
…O’Rourke’s campaign button was a feature in Parker’s ensemble at the Tribeca Film Festival last month, a look Harper’s Bazaar dubbed “her most relatable fashion moment ever.”
The long-time actress and New Yorker isn’t the only celebrity to throw some love at O’Rourke.
Other celebrities who’ve either publicly supported or donated to O’Rourke include (according to the Houston Chronicle):
- Actress Connie Britton, who has starred in Friday Night Lights and Nashville, the television series. She gave $5,400 to the campaign.
- Actor Tate Donovan, who has starred in the O.C. and Damages. He gave $2,955.
- Television writer Jonathan Groff, who is the writer and producer of Black-ish. He gave $500.

Hollywood has been operating under their own fantastical DEFCON 1 since Trump was elected. But if there’s any state where coastal elite meddling will cause voters to bristle, it’s the Lone Star State.DONATE
