Martin Sheen to Campaign for Richardson

“The West Wing” star and longtime activist will stump for Bill Richardson on Sunday and Monday, the campaign said today.

Sheen recently endorsed Richardson and co-hosted a fund-raiser for him at the Bel-Air home of Lee Iacocca.

“Martin is used to backing the underdog in the fight, and I am confident that his participation will put the exclamation point on my grassroots campaign and help me finish very strongly in Iowa,” Richardson said in a statement.

He added, “I hope that I can serve as many terms in the White House that his characters have.”

On Sunday, Sheen will appear with Richardson in Des Moines, and later in the day at an event in Fort Dodge. He’ll appear the next morning at a campaign event in Ames.

In 2004, Sheen campaigned in Iowa for Howard Dean.
