Jon Voight to Rally Support for McCain in San Leandro

Alameda County GOP HQ

Actor Jon Voight will visit Alameda County Republican headquarters tomorrow to rally support for GOP presidential candidate John McCain. The San Leandro visit is part of a long day for Voight, which starts with Burbank and Sacramento before visiting San Leandro and Fresno and Santa Monica later in the day.

Voight is the second Hollywood star to visit San Leandro during this year's elections. Danny Glover was featured at City Council candidate Ursula Reed's campaign kickoff event in May 2008.

Since protesting against the Vietnam War in the 1970s, Voight has become more conservative and endorsed Rudy Guiliani for President before it became clear that Guiliani's one-state campaign strategy had failed.

The Alameda County GOP office is located at 1039 MacArthur Boulevard in San Leandro. Voight is expected to join the afternoon phone bank from 2pm to 4pm.
