Allison Janney and Julia Louis-Dreyfus are among the many “The West Wing” and “Veep” stars headlining an upcoming crossover event to support the Democratic Party of Wisconsin.

The episode, which will be live-streamed once on Sunday, Oct. 9, at 8 p.m. ET, calls for donations that will be “used to defeat Republicans” in the upcoming midterm elections. Those interested in attending can make a donation of any amount to attend the event.

“Anything you donate will be used to defeat Republicans like Ron Johnson this November, thereby ensuring that Mitch McConnell doesn’t regain control of the U.S. Senate,” the donation page reads.

The special crossover reunion will also feature Bradley Whitford, Martin Sheen, Tony Hale, Gary Cole, Richard Schiff, Matt Walsh, Anna Chlumsky, Mary McCormack, Timothy Simons, Janel Maloney and Melissa Fitzgerald.

Louis-Dreyfus and Janney have publicly supported the Democratic Party and called out former President Donald Trump, as the fictional “Veep” vice president lightened the mood at the 2020 Democratic National Convention with pointed critiques and “The West Wing” star noted that Trump had “divided [the U.S.] like it was back in the Civil War.”

“We have joined forces with ‘The West Wing’ because winning Wisconsin this November is crucial to saving American democracy,” Louis-Dreyfus told The Hollywood Reporter. “And also because when MAGA Republicans are beaten and democracy thrives and flourishes, ‘Veep’ seems much funnier and less sad.”

The event will support the democratic party in the battleground state as gears up for the midterm elections this November.
