Georgia Votes 2018: Alyssa Milano raising money for 10th district Democrat

Another Georgia congressional race is gaining the attention of Hollywood political activists.

Actress Alyssa Milano is raising money for Democrat Richard Dien Winfield in the 10th district race.

Contributors who fork over $250 receive a signed headshot from Milano, while $1,000 gets them an L.A. dinner with the actress and $2,000 allows them to attend an L.A. sporting event with Milano.

In 2017, Milano actively supported Democrat Jon Ossoff in Atlanta’s 6th district special election in what became the nation’s most expensive congressional campaign in history. Ossoff was eventually defeated by Republican Karen Handel, who is again facing Democratic opposition in her re-election bid.

Also raising money for Winfield are writer and civil rights activist Shaun King and actor Bradley Whitford, who appeared on NBC’s “The West Wing.”

Winfield is one of three Democrats hoping to unseat U.S. Rep. Jody Hice, who is also facing two challengers from within his own GOP.

Winfield, a UGA philosophy professor, has come under fire recently from another Democrat, Chalis Montgomery, for his writings regarding the traditional family structure in his book, "The Just Family," an issue that came up recently during a debate.

The 10th district stretches from eastern metro Atlanta into portions of central Georgia.
