Celebrities, Studios Have Incentive to Watch Georgia Governor’s Race


The entertainment industry’s battleground state in the pivotal Nov. 6 midterm elections just might be Georgia.

Celebrities and liberal-leaning industry figures have campaigned hard for big-name candidates like Beto O’Rourke in Texas and countless other Democratic politicians across the nation. But, one key race that could impact studios’ pocketbooks will be who moves into the Atlanta governor’s mansion, which will be vacated by outgoing Gov. Nathan Deal, a Republican, due to term limits.

Democrat Stacey Abrams, the 44-year-old seeking to become the nation’s first African-American woman elected to a governorship, is backed by the likes of Steven Spielberg, Jeffrey Katzenberg, Ben Affleck, Kevin Bacon and Chris Rock. Her Republican opponent, Secretary of State Brian Kemp, is endorsed by President Donald Trump.
