Samuel L. Jackson has starred in pretty much every movie ever made, and now he's starring in a political ad for Democrat competing for a seat in Congress in what's expected to be one of Minnesota's tightest races. 

Jackson, a star in Hollywood hits like Pulp Fiction, Django Unchained, Unbreakable, Goodfellas and so many, is backing Angie Craig in her campaign to unseat Republic Jason Lewis in Minnesota's 2nd Congressional District. 

Jackson has tweeted a series of campaign videos supporting Democrats, and his role in the video for Craig is cleaning Craig's cat's litter box while she works on the campaign trail. 

Craig ran in 2016 and lost to Lewis by the narrowest of margins, just 1.8 percent of the vote (6,655 votes). 

Craig, a 45-year-old Eagan resident, is a former executive of Fortune 500 medical device company St. Jude Medical, where she worked for 10 years between 2005-2015. Also a former journalist, she has four children of college or high school age with her wife, Cheryl Greene.
