South High School graduate turned world-famous movie star Josh Hartnett is throwing his support behind Betsy's bid to become Minneapolis mayor. That may bode well for Hodges, as Harnett's most recent previous foray into Minnesota politics produced the results he was hoping to achieve -- he campaigned for President Obama's reelection in the state last year.

Hodges announced Hartnett's endorsement in a tweet: Considering none of the serious candidates are known to support whatever 20th century solutions would be, Hartnett's rationale for backing Betsy is a little unsatisfying. But we don't doubt the politically aware movie star has had a few conversations about the mayoral race at Lucia's, which we hear is his preferred Minneapolis haunt.

Hartnett's endorsement should come as no surprise. Betsy has long supported the rights of the un- and under-employed.
