Alec Baldwin says he’s headlining a New Hampshire Democratic Party dinner in the hopes of helping Democrats in November’s midterm elections.

The 60-year-old actor — who snagged an Emmy Award last year for his  portrayal of President TrumpDonald TrumpRealClearPolitics reporter says Freedom Caucus shows how much GOP changed under Trump Jake Ellzey defeats Trump-backed candidate in Texas House runoff DOJ declines to back Mo Brooks's defense against Swalwell's Capitol riot lawsuit MORE on NBC's "Saturday Night Live" — will be the keynote speaker at the group’s inaugural Eleanor Roosevelt Dinner, it announced Thursday.


"With 69 days until the election, I have dedicated my efforts to helping the Democratic Party win across the country," Baldwin said in a statement ahead of the Oct. 14 dinner. "I’m excited to speak at the Eleanor Roosevelt Dinner knowing that New Hampshire has been on the frontlines of electing strong Democratic candidates to office.”

It’s not the first time that Baldwin — an ardent critic of Trump who’s sparred on social media with the commander in chief — has served as the featured guest for Democrats. He appeared at the Iowa Democratic Party’s fall gala last November.

The “30 Rock” actor has publicly mulled a potential political bid before, saying last year during an appearance in Washington, “I think I’d be a good president.”

“To run for office is something that I want to do,” Baldwin said at the time, but added that campaign “doesn't seem to be practical with my lifestyle and my children."

In a June interview with SiriusXM’s Howard Stern, Baldwin expressed confidence if he was pitted in a hypothetical 2020 White House race against Trump.

“If I ran, I would win,” Baldwin said.
