‪As the #IowaCaucus nears I wanted to weigh in. From the first debate, even given little opportunity to speak, every thought he expressed resonated with me. His logic and knowledge are impressive. He’ a smart guy with a kind heart, talking real statistics on complicated issues in a way no one else does or can. Please read his book #TheWarOnNormalPeople or listen to it on youtube. It’s about 7 hours. It’s worth your time. There have been some interesting candidates all well intended Im sure, but thus far to me he rises above all for his demeanor and intellect. It is time to Make America Think Harder. And I know....Some will say “Im a unqualified Hollywood liberal know nothing...who cares what I think” For the most part, Im pretty private but like most of us I have close friends and family that voted for #trump. I ask you and them to consider #AndrewYang. He wants to solve the problems that got us here in a new forward thinking way. I think he can beat Trump and I believe he will be better for America. So Thanks for listening. With respect and love. #link in bio #YANGYANG #math #AndrewYang2020 #HumanityFirst ‬

"It is time to Make America Think Harder. He wants to solve the problems that got us here in a new forward-thinking way. I think he can beat Trump and I believe he will be better for America," she continued. 

Hatcher is the latest celebrity to endorse Yang, who has climbed in the polls and in fundraising after being virtually unknown nationally last year. 

"The Walking Dead Star" Steve Yeun announced his support for Yang last month, saying he was "rising to the challenge of a new world and he’s uniquely thinking about the future and the life we will leave for our children and further generations." 

One of Yang's most notable celebrity endorsements to date came from Donald Glover, also known by his stage name Childish Gambino, last month. 

In addition to formally endorsing Yang, Glover joined the Yang campaign as a "creative consultant."
