Amy Poehler on Thursday revealed which Democrats might have the support of her politically savvy character on the NBC show “Parks and Recreation.”

In an interview with Variety, Poehler said that she thinks Leslie Knope, the local deputy parks director in the fictional town of Pawnee, Ind., would vouch for similar Midwest candidates.

Pete Buttigieg, the mayor of South Bend., Ind., might also have the support of her character.

“That would be perfect, she might like that underdog status of him,” Poehler said.

“But again, she might be too busy fixing the bench,” she continued.

Poehler starred in “Parks and Recreation” during the hit show’s run from 2009 to 2015. The stars came together at PaleyFest for a panel on the show’s 10th anniversary.
