Washington, Aug 4 (ANI): Hollywood stars Ben Affleck and Matt Damon and their pregnant wives turned up at a Miami fundraiser for presumptive Democratic presidential candidate Barrack Obama on Saturday.
Both the couples attended the orientation at club Set to pledge their support for Obama.
According to reports, the actors also delivered speeches from the stage.
“Jennifer Garner gave the first speech supporting Obama, and she was very witty, clever and funny,” Peoples Magazine quoted a source as saying.
“She was followed by her husband Ben, then Matt Damon. The men gave serious political speeches on how the country needs change,” the source said.
Best of friends, Damon and Affleck made it pretty evident that they are supporting Obama over McCain, as he is a deserving candidate and a man of principles, who would head the country towards righteousness.
“For a lot of reasons, but mostly because I don”t like the path this country’’s on and if McCain is elected we”ll be continuing down that same path,” Damon said, when asked as to why he was supporting Obama.
The stars seemed to be in jolly good moods, and were friendly to all the guests.
Later, the stars left in a Limo to attend a party at Anthony Kennedy Shrivers Miami Beach home. (ANI)
