Jennifer Garner, Ben Affleck Support Alec Baldwin Run for NYC Mayor


Alec Baldwin’s so-far theoretical run for mayor–which is based on a a “pal” talking to the Daily (something that may or may not have been okayed by Baldwin, since “friends” leaking stuff can be a classic tabloid move engineered by the subject)–has gotten its first celeb power couple endorsement, weirdly via Fox & Friends.

Jennifer Garner guested on FNC three stooges’ morning show Thursday to discuss Save the Children’s early education initiative, and when asked about her fellow thespian’s mayoral dreams said:

I think he would give us all a run for his money. He’s awesome, I love Alec. I think he should go for it. He could run and let people vote!

Garner,told F&F that she supports Baldwin’s run. as does Affleck:

Yes, I stand up for Alec Baldwin!…

When asked if Affleck would support Baldwin,the actress at first politely declined to speak for her husband, then laughed:

Oh have no idea what Ben would say, he would… Yes, Ben stands up for Alec Baldwin too!

adding that she didn’t see her spouse running for office anything soon.

Ooooh, let’s hope Alec Baldwin does run, if only for the who’s wearing what/fashion do’s and don’ts at the various fundraisers (and hopefully the inaugural ball)!
