Midlothian, Va. ( - Two weeks out from Election Day, State Senate candidate Amanda Pohl brought in some celebrity power to try and win a district that has been fairly Republican in rcent years.  Actor Alec Baldwin, who was in "Hunt for Red October," "Boss Baby," and "30 Rock," as well as portraying President Donald Trump on SNL, knocked on a few doors for Pohl in the Bayhill Pointe Neighborhood.

Baldwin says he chose Pohl because he supports her stances on issues, citing specifically her support of the Equal Rights Amendment.  Baldwin also mocked Pohl's opponent, State Senator Amanda Chase (R), pointing out both he and Chase have had recently high profile spats over parking spaces.

Chase has criticized the appearance as Pohl relying on voices outside Virginia.  Pohl says if she felt Baldwin's appearance would hurt her, she wouldn't have had him campaign with her.

Baldwin also made stops in Fredericksburg and Fairfax.
