“We’re just looking forward to a human being with a real heart and soul running our country.”

“Hocus Pocus” star Kathy Najimy came to Philadelphia on Saturday to work her magic for the Biden-Harris campaign. The actress, comedienne, and activist knocked on doors and talked to voters alongside “Will and Grace” star Debra Messing in North Philadelphia.

“We both live in New York, and I mean, Pennsylvania can decide this election. This is Biden’s home state and we just wanted to come down and get people excited about the possibility for change,” Messing said.

“The last four years have been all about destruction and division, sickness and death, and the breaking down of our institutions, and of our reputation around the globe.”

Najimy said the people she and Messing met seemed to be excited to talk with them.

People were “telling us about why they’re gonna vote for Biden-Harris, you know, the points that are important to them and their families,” Najimy said. “We used to be proud of this country.”

Najimy said she is proud to back the Biden-Harris ticket because of former Vice President Joe Biden’s track record and his plans for the future.

“He chose a woman and a woman of color as his running mate, which I think shows us everything,” Najimy said. “It shows us where his respect is and where his allegiance is.”

Najimy noted that Biden also has promised to take steps to enshrine the Equal Rights Amendment in the Constitution.

Najimy said Biden is facing issues of injustice head-on and offering plans to close the gaps.

“He is the only candidate we have now that is addressing inequality. The current president is unable to address the inequality between races and he certainly hasn’t addressed anything about women,” Najimy said. “So, you know, we’re just looking forward to a human being with a real heart and soul running our country.”

Najimy noted that although people are nervous about what will happen on Tuesday it’s important to vote.

“I’m scared, we’re scared, that’s the truth. There’s a lot on the line,” she said.

Messing said that as a voter, she’s trusting the process and the people of the United States.

“I just keep talking about the fact that our government is, by the people and for the people,” Messing said. “And we get to decide. We get to decide the future of this country with our vote.”
