Actor Jon Hamm, known for his role in “Mad Men,” has publicly supported Adam Schiff’s campaign for Dianne Feinstein’s Senate seat in a recent fundraising email.

Hamm praised Schiff’s efforts in holding former President Trump accountable and emphasized the need for someone who can stand up for democracy.

However, the article also highlights Schiff’s controversial history, including his censure by the GOP-led U.S. House for promoting unproven allegations of Trump’s collusion with Russia.

“You may know me better for my role as advertising executive Don Draper on the show Mad Men, but today I’m writing to talk to you about Adam Schiff and why we need to support his run for California’s Senate seat,” Hamm wrote.

“I believe that this election for California’s next U.S. Senator will shape the course of our democracy for many years to come,” he said. “We need to elect someone who won’t back down from a tough fight and knows how to get things done.”

“Over the years, I’ve watched Adam do the important work to investigate Trump, lead the impeachment trial, and hold his feet to the fire for the January 6th insurrection.”

“Adam has shown that he doesn’t back down from big fights. He’s defended our democracy and our shared values throughout his career, and he’ll keep up those fights in the Senate,” he said.

Despite this, Schiff has managed to raise $8 million in his initial fundraising efforts for the Senate seat.
