On Monday, Alec Baldwin took to the stage not in New York – but Des Moines, Iowa as the keynote speaker at the Iowa Democratic Party's fall fundraiser.
Known for his visceral Donald Trump imitations that have been one-part in the resurgence of Saturday Night Live, the Golden Globe and Emmy award winning actor took a serious tone in front of an audience of 3,000 party loyalists. On Monday he was calling for unity and pledging that he’s ready to fight to help the Democrats win.
It’s also a known fact that the Iowa Democratic Party fall fundraiser has also been the starting point for campaigns.
Is Alec Baldwin considering a run for the Oval Office in 2020?
Does he have what it takes to win the Democratic primary?
Could he beat Trump?
And, is a battle of big screen celebrities what America needs in a leader?
These are all interesting questions – and that’s where the experts from Cedarville University can help.
