Obama campaign calls on star power


President Obama called on some star power Saturday to try and boost his campaign.

On the same day Katy Perry warmed up the crowd for his speech in Milwaukee, some stars of television pitched in at an Obama campaign phone bank in south Madison.

Zach Knighton and Adam Pally, from the ABC show "Happy Endings", were joined by cast members from the cable show, "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia".

"It's Always Sunny..." star, Danny Devito, spoke about why he supports President Obama.

"He genuinely cares about the folks of the United States," Devito said. "And I feel like he's a straight shooter. If he doesn't know the answer to something, he's going to find out."

Also in Wisconsin today, former comedian turned Democratic U.S. Senator from Minnesota, Al Franken, made a number of stops today on behalf of U.S. Senate candidate, Rep. Tammy Baldwin.
