MIAMI, Fla. -- A pregnant Jennifer Garner gave a “witty, clever” speech supporting presumptive Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama at a fundraiser on Saturday night, People reported.
Joined by husband Ben Affleck, as well as friends Matt Damon and wife Luciana, who’s also expecting, Garner reportedly gave the first speech at a $1,000-per-person VIP reception at club SET.
“She was very witty, clever and funny,” a SET source told People. “She was followed by her husband Ben, then Matt Damon. The men gave serious political speeches on how the country needs change.”
The actress — who is reportedly four-months pregnant — showed off her baby bump in a black cocktail dress.
The stars were reportedly in good spirits, drinking bottled water and mingling with guests.
“They were all in great moods and very friendly to everyone,” another source told People.
Damon spoke to reporters outside of SET about his support for the Democratic candidate, saying that he’s for Obama “for a lot of reasons. But mostly because I don’t like the path this country’s on and if McCain is elected we’ll be continuing down that same path.”
At least one of the famous couples may make an appearance at the Democratic National Convention later this month.
“I’d like to,” Affleck told People.
After an hour-and-a-half at the fundraiser, the Afflecks and Damons reportedly left in a limo for a private party at the Miami Beach home of Anthony Kennedy Shriver, the founder and head of the Best Buddies charity and a first cousin of Caroline Kennedy Schlossberg, a a member of the Obama Vice Presidential Nominating Committee.
