A few months ago, many political pundits called Sen. Bernie Sanders’ (I-VT) bid for the White House a longshot. Today, Sanders leads Hillary Clinton and the rest of his Democratic opponents in crucial states, including Iowa and New Hampshire, according to recent polling.
With momentum picking up, the Sanders campaign released the names of 128 celebrities who have pledged support for the campaign.
Jackson Browne, David Crosby, Will Ferrell, Margaret Cho, Danny DeVito, the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Juliette Lewis, Zoë Kravitz, Justin Long, Ezra Miller, Graham Nash, Patton Oswalt, Jeremy Piven, John C. Reilly, Bonnie Raitt, Sarah Silverman, Steve Wozniak and Hans Zimmer.
“We — the undersigned artists, musicians, and cultural leaders of America — are excited to endorse a new vision for our country. It’s a vision that pushes for a progressive economic agenda,” reads the campaign page.
Mark Ruffalo and Susan Sarandon, whose names were also on the list, were early celebrity supporters of Sanders. DeVito maxed out political contributions to Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley, who is also seeking the Democratic nomination, earlier this year.
On Friday, Ruffalo shared an image of himself at a Sanders rally in New York City.
