The cast of Seinfeld are reuniting for a fundraiser to turn Texas into a Democratic state.

Stars Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Jason Alexander are among those to take part in the reunion on Friday (23 October) alongside co-creator Larry David.

The event, titled “Fundraiser About Something”, will see the sitcom’s cast discuss their favourite episodes of Seinfeld. Profits made from tickets to the virtual event will go towards the mission to turn Texas blue.

“Texas is a battleground state, period,” Louis-Dreyfus, Alexander and David said in a joint statement about the fundraiser. “We knew that we had to reunite for something special and the movement on the ground for Texas Democrats up and down the ballot is the perfect opportunity to do just that. Texans are getting out to vote in droves and showing the world that Texas has never been a red state, it’s been a non-voting state.”

They added: “We couldn’t be more thrilled to host a ‘Fundraiser About Something’ for a terrific organisation like the Texas Democratic Party, who are building the movement necessary to turn Texas blue in 14 days.”

Louis-Dreyfus, who also plays a fictional vice president in Veep, took a series of swipes at Donald Trump when she appeared at the Democratic National Convention in August.

The US election takes place on 3 November. Joe Biden is currently 10 points ahead of Trump in the polls.
