“I think you can look at the two Amanda’s if you will, it’s very clear which one would be better for the state house and for the people of Virginia for this district,” he added, referencing Pohl and Republican Sen. Amanda Chase. “There’s no need to invoke Trump in that all really.” (RELATED: Alec Baldwin Says Anger Management Made Him Realize He’s ‘Not That Angry’)

When one of the reporters pressed the “Saturday Night Live” star further on why he was getting involved in a “local state house election.”
Baldwin responded with, “We think there is a real opportunity here to flip the state. Take two seats in both houses in the house and senate and they’re in control.”
