‘Seinfeld’ stars reunite to raise cash for Texas Democrats

by | Oct 20, 2020 | 2020 Elections, Politics

Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Larry David, and Jason Alexander will be joining “Late Night” host Seth Meyers to fundraise on behalf of Texas Democrats.

The celebrities will pick and discuss behind-the-scenes stories of their favorite episodes of “Seinfeld,” the hit NBC comedy that they starred in throughout the 1990s. 

“Texas is a battleground state, period,” Louis-Dreyfus, Alexander and Davis said in a joint statement. “We knew that we had to reunite for something special and the movement on the ground for Texas Democrats up and down the ballot is the perfect opportunity to do just that.”

The free fundraising event will take place Friday, Oct. 23.
