“Wedding Crashers” star Vince Vaughn introduced Republican presidential hopeful Rep. Ron Paul (Texas) Friday night at the Liberty Political Action Conference (LPAC) in Reno, Nevada.
Vaughn and Paul are “friends,” according to Paul’s campaign. Pictures from the conference posted at Paul’s campaign website show the two chatting along with Paul’s son, Sen.

Vaughn also wrote an endorsement for Paul’s book “End the Fed” in 2009, writing: “Everyone must read this book–Congressmen and college students, Democrats and Republicans–all Americans.”
Vaughn is not Paul’s only celebrity fan. Iconic singer Barry Manilow told The Daily Caller earlier this week, “I agree with just about everything [Paul] says.”
