Cindy Crawford now backing Romney?

Actress and model Cindy Crawford supported President Obama in 2008, but has not yet committed to backing him in 2012.

Crawford's appearance at a Mitt Romney fundraising event on Monday sparked a lot of chatter that she has turned on Obama. But that's not accurate, according to her publicist, Annett Wolf. 

Wolf told The Hill Tuesday afternoon that “at this time, [Crawford] is not aligned with anyone politically.”

The controversy started Monday when Romney spokesman Eric Fehrnstrom tweeted: “Cindy Crawford appears in a demonstration video at Romney call day to show people how to use ComMitt fundraising software.”

The “call day” Fehrnstrom refers to was held on Monday in Las Vegas, where about 800 Romney supporters placed telephone calls to raise money for the likely 2012 GOP presidential candidate.

Wolf said Crawford appeared at the event as a favor to Tagg Romney, who is a friend of Crawford's and the son of the ex-Massachusetts governor. Wolf added that like many other people, Crawford is undecided on who she will support in 2012.

Crawford was among the many celebrities who backed Obama for president in 2008, contributing to his campaign as well as sporting a pro-Obama T-shirt.

The Hill contacted Wolf on Monday, but she did not comment before this initial article was published. After it was posted, Wolf commented to The Hill.
