Actor Rob Lowe says heâ€™s volunteering for Arnold Schwarzeneggerâ€™s gubernatorial campaign because he believes the action-star has injected new energy into California politics. Lowe is a longtime Democrat.
But, he told the syndicated TV entertainment show “Extra” that he wanted to help the Republican candidate unseat Governor Gray Davis in the recall election because Schwarzenegger will “put the people above partisan politics.”
The fellow actor described Schwarzenegger as a natural leader. Loweâ€™s job will be to organize celebrity support for the campaign.
Lowe is one of several high profile advisers to join Schwarzeneggerâ€™s team. Last week George Shultz, secretary of state during the Reagan administration, and billionaire Warren Buffet also announced they will assist the campaign.
