 "Due to the tremendous popularity of these political figures and because our phones are ringing off the hook with requests in film, TV and advertising for their celebrity-look-alikes, our organization will undertake a nationwide search for these figures," stated Ron Smith, producer and host of this upcoming event.
 "This being an election year, it is everybody's privilege to vote for the candidate of their choice ... and we at Ron Smith's Celebrity Look-Alikes will do what we know best by raising everyone's awareness of the upcoming election and having everybody get out and vote for the candidate of their choice in the way that only Ron Smith and his celebrity look-alikes know how," said Smith from his Los Angeles headquarters.
 Winners of the search will receive a prestigious one-year contract with Ron Smith's Celebrity Look-Alikes in television, film, video, print, advertising, commercials, etc. Smith's organization has offices worldwide with more than 30,000 celebrity look-alikes and impressionists on its roster.
 Over the past 18 years, Smith has successfully conducted searches for Michael Jackson, Prince, Elvis, and has also produced a mock royal wedding (Prince Charles and Lady Di), hosted a presidential inauguration and inaugural ball (Carter, Reagan and Bush).
 Smith was also the spokesperson for Proctor & Gamble's national Mr. Clean Search and has conducted major national searches for the 100th birthday of the Statue of Liberty, Oliver North and Fawn Hall, and Russian leader Mikhail Gorbachev, to name a few.
 Most recently Smith and his organization conducted a national search for Operation Desert Storm leaders Generals Norman Schwarzkopf and Colin Powell. In October of 1991, Smith produced and hosted the mock wedding for Elizabeth Taylor and Larry Fortensky, as the real wedding was closed to press and public.
