Karen Bass v Rick Caruso: Here’s Who Celebrities Are Endorsing for L.A. Mayor

From Katy Perry and Snoop Dogg to Magic Johnson and Ariana Grande, these stars have vocalized who will receive their vote Tuesday

On the eve of election day, Los Angeles’ mayoral celebrity endorsement race is out of control. Rich Caruso nabbed Kim Kardashian, Snoop Dogg, and Elon Musk, while Karen Bass has Steven Spielberg, Magic Johnson, and Ariana Grande in her corner. How much power does a tweet for Caruso to Katy Perry’s 108 million followers stack up against support for Bass from 99-year-old liberal legend Norman Lear?

With Bass and Caruso almost neck and neck (At least 3rd place candidate Kevin DeLeon has starchitect Frank Gehry on his side) will the Tweets and sound bites swing voters? If neither candidate gains more than 50% of the vote they will face a runoff election in November. We’ve been tracking the arms race for endorsements of the front runners and here’s how they stack up.
