Bill Weld and Melissa Joan Hart Are Campaigning in Boston
Bill Weld is back, campaigning (sort of) on behalf of his Libertarian running mate Gary Johnson (but mostly on behalf of not electing Republican Donald Trump). And this time, he’s bringing “Sabrina, the Teenage Witch” with him, or rather Melissa Joan Hart, the actress who played her on TV.
The rally, on the eve of the election, will be at Faneuil Hall and is slated to begin at 7 p.m.
Why is he bringing Hart, the TV and movie star, recently of the Christian film God’s Not Dead 2?
Hart has been heading the Libertarian campaign in Connecticut since September, bringing an anti-Trump, anti-big government message to voters in the Nutmeg State. Or, explaining it all, if you will.
“I want to break away from this two-party system and I think it’s important for people to know that there’s another candidate out there who really toes the line between Democrat and Republican,” Hart told People magazine earlier this year, referring to Johnson. “I mean he’s Libertarian. But socially he’s liberal, but fiscally conservative.”
In that interview, she also criticized Trump’s pandering to religious voters (she cited that time he quoted a bible verse from “Two Corinthians” at a rally), adding. “All those people who want to say he is the Christian choice, but I don’t think he is for me.”
Weld, so far, has taken to more apocalyptic assessments of a potential Trump presidency.
‘The man on horseback comes along, people say you’re the only one who can save us and then they’re enslaved,” Weld told Republicans at Harvard recently. “And I think that could happen this year with a Trump presidency.”
“Donald Trump,” he told reporters not long ago, “should not, cannot, and must not be elected President of the United States.”
Libertarians are currently polling at about 4 percent in Massachusetts, according to a recent Suffolk/Boston Globe survey.
