Baldwin sits on the board of People for the American Way, according to The Richmond News. As such, he will show up at three campaign locations and join the volunteers. Imagine the look on people’s faces when he knocks on their doors.
The candidates that he will be supporting have been endorsed by People for the American Way’s Next Up Victory Fund. The advocacy group champions progressive candidates who have been running in state and local elections.
A press release from People for the American Way read:
‘His visit comes as Virginia prepares for pivotal state legislative elections that could flip the General Assembly to Democratic control, solidifying a major political shift in this once deep-red state. The state races are also seen as a warm-up for the 2020 elections and a gauge of voters’ views of the Trump administration.’
