Celebrity Endorsements

A look at celebs who share their spotlight and personal fortunes with 2012's presidential candidates.

Barack Obama

Dozens of A-list celebs are backing President Obama's re-election. In fact, those who list TV/Movies/Music as their profession on Federal Election Commission records are some of Obama's top bundlers, bringing in more than $6,950,000, as of April, 2012.

Mitt Romney

Most big names backing Romney come from banking rather than Broadway or Hollywood. He's still far behind the president in Hollywood- based fundraising. RNC spokesperson Kirsten Kukowski says that could change closer to the convention.
