Hollywood Conservatives Help Romney Raise $6 Million Over The Weekend

Hollywood conservatives came out swinging for GOP Presidential nominee Mitt Romney on Saturday at the Beverly Hilton, reports Deadline Hollywood.

Nearly 1,500 supporters showed up for the Romney fundraiser, where tickets went for $1,000, $15,000 and $50,000, raising a total of $6 million for the campaign.

The attendees included producer Jerry Bruckheimer and wife Linda, CSI: NY’s Gary Sinise, Everybody Loves Raymond’s Patricia Heaton, John O’Hurley, comedian Dennis Miller, Warner Bros chair Terry Semel, Burt Sugarman, music producer David Foster and Frank Price with wife Katherine.

Romney and wife Ann addressed the crowd, and the former governor thanked Miller who introduced him.

“I want to thank Dennis Miller for not just the humor, but the truth in the humor,” Romney said. “Much of what he said tonight, much of what he said was very encouraging and uplifting.”

Romney said there are more conservatives in Hollywood than people think.

“I know in some of the communities around this particular hotel it’s hard to let people know you’re conservative without them looking at you funny,” Romney said, before noting that he had lunch with “a very famous actor — very famous.  Very liberal.  I won’t tell you his name or he’d shoot me… He pulled me aside, he said, ‘In this town, you really can’t get work unless you’re known as a liberal,’ and he said, ‘But no one knows how I really vote.’  And there are a lot of people that feel that way.”

The event was so successful that sources told Deadline that Romney will return to Los Angeles after the first debate, which is scheduled for Oct. 3.

This comes after the Obama campaign announced a star-studded lineup for his  Oct. 7 concert fundraiser at the Nokia Theater in downtown Los Angeles, which include performers Jon Bon Jovi, Stevie Wonder, Katy Perry, Earth, Wind and Fire and Jennifer Hudson.

Madonna: Obama A ‘Black Muslim’

Madonna gave a rather bizarre speech during her MDNA Tour to Washington, D.C. on Monday night.

“Y’all better vote for f–king Obama, OK?” Madonna said. “For better or for worse, all right? We have a black Muslim in the White House. Now that’s some amazing s–t. It means there is hope in this country. And Obama is fighting for gay rights, so support the man, goddamnit.”

The singer recently praised First Lady Michelle Obama and endorsed the President during a concert.

See for yourself. Caution-vulgar language.
