Heated Disagreement Unfolds at Obama Celebrity Voter Drive
There were some heated moments Tuesday afternoon during a celebrity voter registration drive in Charlottesville, sponsored by the Obama campaign.
In between registering new voters, actor Justin Long had a disagreement with a conservative voter over the president's record.
A man approached Long while on the downtown mall and asked him for a reason to vote for President Obama. Long replied, "The environment." The man then criticized him for not answering "the economy." The discussion included other topics like government spending and the war in Iraq. An Obama Campaign spokesperson with Long attempted to usher him away to end the discussion.
Long is best known for the Apple Inc. Mac commercials and his roles in "Live Free or Die Hard" and "Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story".
Long's visit is one of many events for President Obama expected in the Charlottesville area. Republicans have yet to announce any appearances or campaign events for presidential candidate Mitt Romney in central Virginia or the Shenandoah Valley.
