Scarlett Johansson fighting for Barack Obama’s re-election

Washington: Scarlett Johansson co-hosted a fashion-themed fundraiser for Barack Obama’s re-election in New York on Tuesday along with Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour.

The 27-year-old actress, who traded e-mails with then Senator Obama during his 2008 presidential run, is getting involved with his campaign this time too.

The event marked the launch of Runway to Win, a collection of designer goods being sold to raise money for the campaign.

According to a release from Obama for America, Johannson believes that there is ‘so much at stake’, the Politico reported.

“2012 will not be easy. We have to fight even harder this time around, and that’s where Runway to Win will make a real difference,” she said.
