Katy Perry and Nicole Richie support Marianne Williamson's Congressional campaign

Singer Katy Perry and reality TV star-turned-fashion designer Nicole Richie have thrown their support behind self-help author Marianne Williamson's campaign to run for a seat in Congress.

The stars joined guests including Kourtney and Kim Kardashian for a political campaign event in Los Angeles on Tuesday night (08Apr14) in support of Williamson's bid to replace Democratic Representative Henry Waxman, who is retiring from his role in California's 33rd Congressional District.

Richie has also recorded a video testimonial for the writer and aspiring politician, declaring, "I support Marianne Williams because I think that America is ready for positivity, strength and enlightenment."

And she isn't the only celebrity to do so - Eva Longoria, Glee star Jane Lynch, and singer Alanis Morissette have also voiced their support for Williamson's race for a seat in the House of Representatives.

Californians will go to the polls in June (14).
