Several hundred people paid anywhere from $250 to $5,000 for a chance to rub shoulders with Matt Damon, Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck.

“It comes down to a simple choice for all of us. If you like the direction the country is going, you should vote for McCain.” Actor Matt Damon was determined to drive the point home, “But if you want a candidate who rejects those policies but has a vision, then Obama’s your guy!” Damon says he was an early supporter.

Jennifer Garner agrees with Damon, “Ultimately I felt inspired by him and I don’t think anyone in our generation has had that experience.”

Whether or not the star power on South Beach brings in the bucks for Obama, Damon downplays celebrity influence on voters.

“I’m not out here trying to change anybody, but I feel he will do a better job leading the country and changing the course we’re on, which has been disastrous.”

We asked voters what they thought. They say it’s not about the people, but about the issues and policies. “It doesn’t really matter to me, but I do respect their views,” one party-goer told us.
