L.A. Mayor Race, Celebrities & Big Shots Throw Money At Campaigns

The race for Mayor of Los Angeles will come to a close on Election Day Tuesday … and lots of stars are sharing their endorsements in hopes they’ll push their favorite candidate over the finish line with a victory.

Since the primaries wrapped up back in June, it’s all come down to Rep. Karen Bass and Rick Caruso … and while Bass seems to be feelin’ the love in terms of cash support, Caruso has secured a ton of A-list celebrity shout-outs.

Since June, Bass’ campaign has gotten donations from Ken Jeong, Natalie Portman, “Criminal Minds” star Kirsten Vangsness, and Dan Castellaneta — the voice of Homer Simpson — all at $1,500 each — the maximum donation allowed.

Jane Fonda also chipped in $1,200 to Bass — Kerry Washington and “Grey’s Anatomy”s James Pickens Jr. each sent in $1K, while Chris Colfer from “Glee” and WeHo’s Laugh Factory pitched in $500.

As for team Caruso, Paris Hilton‘s father and Kathy‘s husband, Rick, donated $1,500 — as did a bunch of Hollywood execs from Warner Bros. – Discovery, Sony Music, Universal and more.

Caruso got a big celebrity endorsement Sunday from Chris Pratt … calling him “the guy for our city.”

As we reported, a slew of celebs shelled out for both Bass and Caruso during the primaries over the summer, with Tiffany Haddish, John Legend, Steven Spielberg, Jennifer Aniston, and Samuel L. Jackson being a few that went team Bass … while Kim Kardashian, Katy Perry, Elon Musk, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Snoop Dogg went with Caruso — just to name a few.

Now, get out and vote!!!
