Sarah Jessica Parker checked into her hometown of Cincinnati this week, but it was more than just a chance to go home and relax.
The actress was there to help President Barack Obama gain an edge with women voters in the stretch race of the election. As KYPost noted, Sarah Jessica Parker joined actress Alfre Woodward and Democratic strategist Valerie Jarrett at the Obama headquarters in Cincinnati.
Sarah Jessica Parker was part of the event known as “Women Decide 2012.” For Obama, that’s more than just a clever phrase. The president holds a large advantage over GOP challenger Mitt Romney with women voters, and if he is to win re-election in November he will need a strong showing from women.
Nowhere is this more true than Sarah Jessica Parker’s home state of Ohio. The state looks to be the most crucial in the race, with many pundits saying whoever can take the Buckeye State will win the election. Both Barack Obama and Mitt Romney have devoted much time to campaigning in Ohio, and encouraging voters to go to the polls early to vote.
Entertainment Tonight went to the campaign stop to catch up with Sarah Jessica Parker, who said she sees the 2012 presidential election as the most important of her lifetime.
“The things that I feel are most important to women and to children, the things that have made an enormous difference these past four years, and the possibility for even more important, vital and necessary change, is going to come from the Obama administration,” Sarah Jessica Parker said.
