TAMPA, Fla. -- There's a little star power in Tampa. Actor Tim Daley is here with fellow actors Rachel Harrison, Evan Handler and Carol Kane to push continued funding for the arts, something republicans have been hostile to in the past.
"I'm still not willing to paint all republicans with one brush. Or all democrats or anyone," Daly said.
Or Chuck Woolery, the game show host who is here to promote Generation America, an organization he calls the antithesis to the left leaning AARP.
"I'm probably more like the Tea Party. A grassroots, constitutional, balance the budget, cut the spending, let's get back to normalcy and try to grow this country out of this mess because it's the only way out of it," Woolery said.
The common thread here seems to be that if you are a celebrity promoting a cause or even someone promoting a product or a brand. This is a good place to do it because of the high concentration of journalists, opinion leaders and of course elected leaders.
"Well we certainly have a huge number of possibly voting senators, governors, potential presidents, vice presidents, all kinds of people that we can reach in a three day period," Kane said.
For some, it's just a show of support for the party they stand with. Even if that makes them stand out in the entertainment industry.
"Oh I know I am in the minority. But you know there is a bunch of conservatives in Hollywood," actor Stephen Baldwin said.
Including fellow conservative Jon Voight, who had this to say about the media…
"If you read any of the other papers on the left and almost all of the main media is, you'll see ways to denigrate the speeches last night," Voight said.
So while Hollywood tends to be bastion of liberal opinion, the smattering of conservatives who may sometimes feel marginalized have finally found an audience right here in Tampa.
