Fox to campaign for Webb
When actor and Parkinson's disease sufferer Michael J. Fox appeared in two powerful ads for stem cell research and Democratic Senate candidates who support it, the Hook wondered whether the actor would make a similar appearance in Virginia. It now seems we will soon find out.
On November 2, five days before Election Day, Fox is slated to appear at a rally for Democrat Jim Webb at Arlington's Clarendon Ballroom.
No word yet on whether Fox has prepared an ad similar to those for Missouri's Claire McCaskill and Maryland's Ben Cardin, but in a race where the latest Mason-Dixon poll shows Webb only four points behind Senator George Allen– who opposes government sponsorship of embryonic stem cell research– such an ad would undoubtedly stir some debate.
