(Newser) – Numerous Hollywood heavy hitters have donated to the Stacey Abrams campaign, but Will Ferrell has gone further than most. The actor went door-to-door for the Democrat's campaign for governor over the weekend, encouraging people to vote early, TMZ reports. "If you guys turn out, there is no question," he told voters during a stop at Kennesaw State University, per the Hollywood Reporter. He gives a thumbs-up in a photo shared on Twitter. Abrams, who is seeking to become the nation's first black female governor, is locked in a tight race with Brian Kemp, Georgia's Republican secretary of state. (Abrams has accused Kemp of using his job to try to suppress the black vote.)
