‘Seinfeld’ cast members reuniting for Texas Democratic Party fundraiser

Alumni of the hit 1990s sitcom “Seinfeld” will reunite this week for a fundraiser for the Texas Democratic Party.

A “Fundraiser About Something,” a virtual event scheduled for Friday at 8 p.m. Eastern, will feature show creator Larry David, as well as actors Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Jason Alexander. It will be emceed by late night host Seth Meyers. 

The comedians will pick “their favorite Seinfeld episodes and discuss them,” according to a statement from Texas Democrats. Viewers can donate any amount to watch the event.  

“Texas is a battleground state, period. 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,” Dreyfus, Alexander and David said in a joint statement on Tuesday. 

“Texans are getting out to vote in droves and showing the world that Texas has never been a red state, it’s been a non-voting state. We couldn’t be more thrilled to host a ‘fundraiser about something’ for a terrific organization like the Texas Democratic Party, who are building the movement necessary to turn Texas blue in 14 days,” they continued. 

A slate of other film, television and theatre casts have held reunions to fundraise ahead of Election Day, including the casts of “Parks & Recreation,” “Hamilton,” “The West Wing” and more.

Texas Democratic Party Chair Gilberto Hinojosa said in a Tuesday statement, “The Texas Democratic Party could not be more thrilled or excited to have members from the cast of Seinfeld reunite to turn Texas blue. The eyes of the world are on us. We’re building the movement necessary to be victorious in 14 days.”

A number of House seats in the Lone Star state are in play for Democrats, and Democratic Senate challenger MJ Hegar has outperformed expectations in her race against Sen. John Cornyn (R).

President Trump is leading Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden by 4.4 percentage points in Texas, according to a RealClearPolitics polling average
