Election Day: Stars Make Final Pleas for Their Candidates
As President Barack Obama and Mitt Romney made their closing cases on the campaign trail Monday, big-name stars showed support. While Kid Rock joined Romney in New Hampshire, Jay-Z and Bruce Springsteen stumped for Obama in Ohio. While performing his “99 Problems,” Hova tweaked his lyrics in a sly swipe at the Republican presidential nominee. “If you’re having world problems, I feel bad for you, son,” he rapped. “I got 99 problems but Mitt ain’t one.”
And though she wasn’t on stage with her hubby Jay in the swing state, Beyoncé made her pro-Obama voice heard through a handwritten note. “Everyday we see your heart and character, inspiring all of us to give more of ourselves,” the singer wrote in the open letter addressed the POTUS on her site. “You are the leader to take us from where we are to where we need to be. You are the reason my daughter and nephew will grow up knowing that they can truly be ANYTHING they want to be.”
While Obama made his final campaign stops, First Lady Michelle Obama was doing her part in Charlotte, N.C. — where she hasn’t set foot since the Democratic National Convention in early September.
At an airport hangar at Charlotte Douglas International, she was joined by singer Mariah Carey and NBA star Derek Fisher on Election eve. Though the American Idol judge didn’t belt out any high notes, she spoke in support of the president, praising his fight for women’s rights.
Clint Eastwood, Robert Duval and Kelsey Grammer have come out in support of Romney. And now Melissa Joan Hart has hopped on the Republican bandwagon.
“Warning: I may get political today but just stating my feelings, not intending to sway anyone or get into arguments. #maylosefollowers,” the Sabrina, the Teenage Witch tweeted Monday, before sharing her endorsement. “Can’t get too political in only 140 chac but for those asking, I’m voting #RomneyRyan,” she revealed.
