The former mayor of New York City entered the race fairly late in the game (on Nov. 24, 2019) after announcing in March that he wasn’t going to run for president, but that didn’t deter Judy Sheindlin, famously known as Judge Judy, from pledging her support. The Emmy-award winner wrote an op-ed in USA Today outlining why Bloomberg is her top choice.

“An independent, tough-minded businessman, he represents our best chance to bring America together again and begin the long national process of healing,” Sheindlin wrote.

“We need a no-nonsense president who’s sane, competent and honest, someone who can’t be bought and has no skin in the game. As he showed during 12 years as mayor in New York City Hall, Michael Bloomberg fits the bill,” she continued.

“He’s a self-made billionaire, a man who made a lot of money in a very straightforward, transparent way. He’s an advocate for strong action on climate change. He believes in reasonable gun control, like the vast majority of Americans. He believes in making certain that the criminal element in our society — which scars the life of so many — is treated firmly, swiftly and fairly,” she added.

Michael Douglas has also publicly pledged his support and told PEOPLE that he “hasn’t been this excited” about a presidential candidate since John F. Kennedy.

“I feel so blessed that in this particularly difficult time that we have one of the greatest candidates in the history of our elections,” Douglas said.

In his view, Bloomberg offers “a rare opportunity to coalesce and bring us back together, get rid of all this horrid, negative scare tactics that are going on, and the fact that he’s succeeded to the degree that he has is phenomenal.”

Tim Gunn is also backing Bloomberg, and has officially joined on as a member of Bloomberg’s LGBTQ Leadership Council.

“When I talked to his campaign yesterday, they said, ‘We’re getting into this late’ and I thought, Maybe that’s a real advantage,” Gunn told PEOPLE. “He hasn’t been part of this squabbling and bickering. Now he can just ride in like a knight in shining armor.”

Grammy-award winning singer-songwriter John Mellencamp lent his song “Small Town” — and his endorsement — to the Bloomberg campaign, writing, “The stakes are too high to not nominate the candidate who will take the fight directly to Trump,” in a statement released by the former mayor. “From small towns to big cities, Mike Bloomberg has the experience to represent all Americans. He’s a job creator, philanthropist, and true public servant, and I am confident that as president, he will restore America to a place we can be proud of once again.”

Director Clint Eastwood spoke out in support of Bloomberg, telling the Wall Street Journal, “The best thing we could do is just get Mike Bloomberg in there,” adding that he approves of “certain things that Trump has done” though he wishes the president would act “in a more genteel way, without tweeting and calling people names.”
