CHARLOTTESVILLE, Virginia (NEWS CBS19) – Actress Olivia Wilde campaigned for her mother, 5th District candidate Leslie Cockburn, for the C & # 39; ville Stand Up and Vote event in Charlottesville on Sunday.
Wilde's comedian and partner, Jason Sudeikis, was also there to support.
Wilde spoke of the qualities he admired about his mother that make Cockburn fit for Congress.
"She's not only going to represent the people who voted for her, but she's really going to represent people who do not because she's that kind of person," Wilde said. "She has integrity."
Sudeikis spoke to the young voters in the room.
"Young people are the future and children are the future," said Sudeikis. "Young people, you are the now."
The event also included musical performances and other speakers who called on everyone to make a tougher campaign as they move towards election day in November.
