Summer of George, Autumn of Warner?

Anita Kumar

Jason Alexander, an actor best known as perpetually down-and-out George Costanza on Seinfeld , has weighed into Virginia's U.S. Senate race by helping former Democratic governor Mark R. Warner raise money.

"If you thought Seinfeld was a show about nothing, you should check out Congress,'' Alexander in a fundraising letter emailed to supporters today. "I can't remember such a lack of productivity since the summer of George."

The letter turns more serious after that. Alexander asks for donations, as small as $5, before Sept. 30, the latest filing deadline, and talks about why he is "throwing his full support" behind Warner in his race against former governor James S. Gilmore III.

"He hasn't just talked a good game,'' he wrote. "As governor, he actually walked the walk by working across the aisle to deliver results and turn Virginia's struggling economy around."

The two met when Warner was traveling the country to gage interest in a possible presidential run, Warner spokesman Kevin Hall said.

Alexander is not a Virginia resident. Not that there's anything wrong with that.

The full letter is below:

If you thought Seinfeld was a show about nothing, you should check out Congress. I can't remember such a lack of productivity since the summer of George.

In all seriousness, the gridlock in Washington is extremely worrisome. This crowd has already set an all-time record for filibusters in a single Congress, and they're still in session! No matter how many good ideas are out there, if we can't move beyond the same partisan politics, not much is going to happen.

That's why I'm throwing my full support behind Mark Warner. He hasn't just talked a good game. As governor, he actually walked the walk by working across the aisle to deliver results and turn Virginia's struggling economy around.

I'm asking you to help elect Mark Warner and send his kind of leadership to Washington. With just a few days to go until the next big filing deadline, it's more important than ever that we show our support for his campaign. By making a contribution, you can demonstrate a strong commitment to pointing our country in a new direction.

Please Donate $5 Before Midnight on September 30th.

The 2008 elections are some of the most important we'll ever live through. There is just too much at stake to take anything for granted.

And with the upcoming FEC deadline, this is also one of the most important moments for us to demonstrate the strength of Mark Warner's candidacy. So please, make a contribution.

Please Donate $5 Before Midnight on September 30th.

. . . and then enjoy serenity now.

Thanks,

Jason Alexander
