L.A. mayor race: See the celebs voting for Bass and Caruso

The 2022 midterm elections are here, as are confirmations from some of the biggest names in entertainment. Whether on Twitter or Instagram, stars like Chris Pratt, Norman Lear and Kerry Washington are campaigning for Congressman Karen Bass or billionaire Rick Caruso in the race for LA’s next mayor.

Hours before Election Day on Tuesday, Guardians of the Galaxy star Pratt revealed his election in an Instagram story.

“I don’t usually support political candidates. But there is too much to lose in this election,” he wrote, reported Fox News. “If you are an LA voter, I urge you to vote for @rickcarusola. He’s a builder. He knows how to do s—. He’s the guy for our city.”

Pratt became one of the latest Hollywood figures to endorse the real estate developer. He joins Gwyneth Paltrow, Snoop Dogg, Kim Kardashian, Netflix CEO Ted Sarandos and Katy Perry, who previously backed the mogul for mayor in the May primary.

In an Instagram post shared Monday, Perry took a selfie with her electronic ballot — which Caruso had picked as her pick for LA mayor. She also shared her vote on Measure 28.

“I vote for myriad reasons (see news) but especially because Los Angeles is a hot mess,” she captioned her post.

The “Dark Horse” singer previously faced criticism for supporting Caruso when she called for abortion rights in July. Twitter critics pointed out that Perry supported a candidate who had donated to anti-abortion politicians and organizations in the past.

They also campaigned for their support for Caruso in light of the election Mario Lopez, Paris HiltonMusic manager Scooter Braun, Jessica Alba, Lisa Vanderpump and Maria Shriver.

Rep. Bass, on the other hand, can count on support Rosario DawsonStar Wars icon Markus Hamill, Yvette Nicole Braun and more. On Monday, television legend Norman Lear expressed his support for Bass in a Twitter thread and video.

“Karen Bass is the only true lifelong pro-choice Democrat who shares our values,” wrote Lear, 100. “She’s the only candidate in the running with a proven track record of doing tough things.”

He added that Bass is the “leader” Los Angeles needs, noting that she has “real plans — not just things that sound good — to solve homelessness and make LA safer and more affordable.”

Taking to Instagram, “She-Hulk” actress Jameela Jamil said she might not fully subscribe to Bass’ political decisions, but says the mayoral candidate is “a real politician.”

“She’s worked from the ground up and actually cares about the WHOLE community and it’s honestly amazing that she’s managed to hold off Caruso for so long without the funds he has in his own damn bank account to fend for himself promoting yourself,” she previously wrote, attacking Elon Musk and other billionaires who “don’t live in the real world.”
