It seems like a lot of the celebrity world are Democrats, or maybe they are just the ones that make the most noise. There are plenty of stars that believe in small government, tax deduction and conservative values. In other words, there are plenty of celebrities that are Republican. Actor Stephen Baldwin is one of these famous Republicans. He called Sarah Palin “fantastic” and threatened to move to Canada if Barack Obama was elected. The Texas-born Jessica Simpson, known for her beautiful voice and beautiful clothing line, also joins this list of popular Republicans. She, allegedly, doesn’t mix her career with politics, but she infamously turned down an invite from President Bush back in 2006 to a GOP fundraiser.

For Republican Rich Iott, becoming a politician was never part of his career goals. The longtime Ohio resident and Chief Executive Officer of Seaway Food Town kind of fell into it. In 2010, Rich was the endorsed Republican candidate for the U.S. Congressional seat in Ohio’s 9th District. He was not elected but carried over 41% of the vote, with the best performance of any candidate in the nation running in a plus-10 Democratic district. “I never had the desire to be in politics, I only had the desire to serve my fellow man. Things weren’t good and I thought I can make a difference by bringing something new into office, Rich Iott says. For this ex-politician, going up against Marcy Kaptur in 2010 was more of a sense of duty.

Louisiana-native and pop star sensation Britney Spears joins the famous Republican list. She was a big supporter of President George Bush and various GOP House representatives. Who’s the Boss’ Tony Danza, a registered Republican, is known to have contributed donations to Republican nominees. Sarah Michelle Gellar, Clint Eastwood and the ultra-conservative Mel Gibson, are all Republicans. Actor Kelsey Grammer said in a FOX  interview that he’s a Republican because he believes that the individualism is the most sacred thing. He’s also signaled toward a possible senate run. Comedian and the host of The Price is Right, Drew Carey, who’s also from Ohio just like former politician Rich Iott, has been touted as a Republican senator, but actually leans more towards Libertarian. In 2008, he spoke out against McCain/Pain.
