Happy Super Tuesday from the super famous!
The Democratic primary election takes place today in 14 states, including California, and several celebrities have taken to social media to campaign for their preferred presidential candidate.
Sen. Bernie Sanders has attracted a number of high-profile supporters — including Ariana Grande, Susan Sarandon and Dick Van Dyke — as has Sen. Elizabeth Warren, backed by Constance Wu, Janelle Monáe, Sally Field and more.
Former Vice President Joe Biden has collected endorsements from the likes of Cher and Debra Messing, while former New York Mayor Mike Bloomberg has Ted Danson and Tim Gunn in his corner.

Bernie Sanders and former Vice President Joe Biden.Former New York Mayor Michael R.

I refuse to underestimate the power of intelligence, kindness and decency.— Alyssa Milano (@Alyssa_Milano) March 2, 2020
My friend, @JoeBiden has all of that and so much more.
Joe already has the respect of world leaders. He has the experience to effectively lead on day one.

I understand completely how certain other candidates provide ideas, hope, comfort.— HABFoundation (@ABFalecbaldwin) February 29, 2020
And if one among those convinced me they could win, I’m in.
But they haven’t.#Biden2020
I just donated to @joebiden campaign and I’m very proudly voting for @joebiden on Super Tuesday in the California primary! He’s a good and decent man and will restore dignity to the office. He’ll be a president we can be proud of and have faith in. Let’s all get behind Joe!— Jane Lynch (@janemarielynch) March 1, 2020
For as long as I’ve known him, @MikeBloomberg has been a champion for the LGBTQ+ community. Unlike others, Mike listens carefully to the concerns of his constituents - and gets things done.— Tim Gunn (@TimGunn) January 29, 2020
I’m voting for Mike because he will Make it Work for the LGBTQ+ community & all Americans. pic.twitter.com/z7ZITpvvo2

Tomorrow is Super Tuesday which means 1357 pledged delegates (33.8% of the nationwide total) are up for grabs. I voted in California via absentee ballot for @berniesanders! For far too long the political establishment has sacrificed the interests of the people for those of corporations and billionaires. That’s why we have a country with the highest incarceration rate in the world, an environmental disaster on our hands and millions of people in insurmountable debt who’ve been denied fundamental human rights like health care and education. A Democracy means one person, one vote, not billionaires buying elections. Tomorrow we have the opportunity to restore our democracy and make our country prioritize the interests of its citizens. Go vote!
So much respect for these volunteers, not only in Charleston but nationwide, who are putting in the work to spread @BernieSanders’ message door-to-door and getting people out to vote. https://t.co/OioGGytlDe— Susan Sarandon (@SusanSarandon) February 24, 2020
GO BERNIE! Ayah New Hampshah! This is the leader we need Babees https://t.co/WgdHTeLndI— Sarah Silverman (@SarahKSilverman) February 12, 2020
Bernie’s what’s happening!😁— Danny DeVito (@DannyDeVito) February 11, 2020

Hey Super Tuesday voters, let’s follow the lead of young people who see hope in their future with Bernie Sanders! We have a chance to guarantee healthcare for all, tackle the climate crisis with a solution as big as the problem and fund this and much more by simply asking the super rich to pay just a little more in taxes. This is not pie in the sky, it’s realistic solutions to very real problems and we owe it to our children and the next generation. Bernie has a real chance to win and get these wildly popular policies passed If we get out there and vote for him today. Go to this website to find your polling place: https://berniesanders.com/vote

Bernie sanders is not a radical.— Cole M. Sprouse (@colesprouse) February 25, 2020
Raising minimum wage is not radical.
Pursuing healthcare for all is not radical.
Pursuing higher education for all is not radical.
Seeking legislation that protects our earth, our home, is not radical.
The pursuit of equity is American.
Elizabeth Warren .— Janelle Monáe, Cindi (@JanelleMonae) March 3, 2020
Because I love her and think she has ALL the qualities of a great leader, as well as a healing way of communicating that this country so desperately needs, I’m voting for @ewarren. Do with this info what you will. I’m not a perfect person & I once lied about seeing Wicked.— billy eichner (@billyeichner) February 25, 2020

Here are some posts that have touched me today on #supertuesday. I was very proud to for my candidate. The picture is of me happily making phone calls to super volunteers, thanking them for their incredible energy walking through neighborhoods all across our country, talking to folks, making phone calls.... I talked to people who are hungry for big structural change, for the corruption in Washington to cease, for government to work for ordinary folks, and for everything from a fair paycheck to climate justice. I have been moved and impressed by grassroots and local workers providing direct services on issues such as homelessness, domestic violence, elder abuse, prison reform, and more..... Thank you for a powerful week campaigning for @elizabethwarren
Today is primary day in California where you can same day register! Make the time to vote, whomever you support. It does matter. But if you’re looking for a candidate, Elizabeth Warren is a great choice. I am so excited about her candidacy.— roxane gay (@rgay) March 3, 2020
I’m with @SenWarren. I trust her judgment and I believe in her love for this country. Where she goes, I go.— Jenny Han (@jennyhan) March 2, 2020
I’m voting @ewarren on Tues.— Kathy Griffin (@kathygriffin) March 1, 2020
I am also a realist & believe in having a plan B. What do you think of a Biden/Stacey Abrams ticket?
Steady experience & guidance during an immediate health & financial crisis with a path to the future for women in significant leadership roles.

Do your research. Cast your votes like your life depends on it. Because in 2020, it does. Choose the candidate who chooses you. #ChooseWarren #SheCantWinIfYouDontVote #Vote #SheHasAPlan ElizabethWarren.com for more info. Reposted from @elizabethwarren I will continue listening to and learning from impacted communities because they make the plans we propose stronger. I'm committed to being their partner in the White House. - #regrann
I’ve been better about keepin my mouf shut on this here platform BUT it is so clearly Elizabeth Warren. I’ve seen enough. And the idea that Buttigieg could have come out ahead of her in ANYTHING at this point says sooooooooo much about US, about where we are right now.— Barry Jenkins (@BarryJenkins) February 20, 2020
