It's not often that celebrities visit Grand Junction, but every four years it seems to happen. Being a swing state has it's advantages. 

So why does one leave the Shire to visit Grand Junction?

Sean Astin, most known as his role as Samwise Gamgee in Lord of the Rings, playing Rudy in Rudy, and Mikey Walsh in The Goonies, made his appearance in Grand Junction yesterday, September 8, for his political support towards Hillary Clinton. Even if you aren't a fan of his political stand, it's neat to see a famous actor make his way to the Western Slope.

Astin encouraged students at CMU to register to vote, and was later spotted at the Downtown Farmers Market. When he volunteered to help with the Clinton Campaign, Colorado was on the list of important places for him to visit. This goes to show you, you never know who you will see walking the streets for the next two months.

Did you see Sean Astin when he was here? Post your pictures!

It's pretty cool for both parties when you meet Sean Astin, while wearing a Lord of the Rings Shirt. Taylor Sturm definitely made the right wardrobe choice for school that day.
