Brandon Routh took part in the celebrity exclusive Entertainment Basketball League this past Sunday (February 13). The Superman stud worked up a sweat by playing some aggressive ball.
This week Routh is in Washington D.C. for another one of his passions, politics and specifically caucusing. Routh is in Washington this week to present his home-state senator, Tom Harkin (D) with a lifetime leadership award from the Voices for National Service, a coalition of community service groups.
“My parents go way back with helping out with Harkin’s reelection campaigns,” he told ITK. But these days, Routh said, they’re gearing up for the big Republican caucuses next year. “[My parents] worked the polls in 2008, [which] was my first actual caucus. Unfortunately, I was a California resident at the time, so I couldn’t cast a vote, but the caucus system is amazing!”
Routh explained what’s so darn cool about the caucus system. “You can literally sway people in the room, and that happened while I was there. Nothing is blind or behind closed doors, everything’s out there in the open, and it’s kind of an exciting, and you know, ballsy thing.”
