The DNC and members of Congress “are turning to Hollywood for help with voter turnout and messaging ahead of the midterm elections and 2020 presidential campaign, quietly consulting with a group of actors, writers and producers here,” Politico reports.
“DNC Chairman Tom Perez, several House members and other top elected officials have already met with the group, formed by members of the entertainment industry in the wake of the 2016 election, that participants liken to a TV writers’ room, complete with producers of such programs as Veep.”
Said writer and producer Alex Gregory: “It really is focused on what do we stand for? In some ways, how did we lose? It is a moment of soul searching right now in that, we lost to an insane person and that was more appealing that what we had to offer.”
