Hillary Clinton is enlisting a fake president to help her open her first Georgia campaign office this weekend.

Actor Tony Goldwyn, who plays President Fitzgerald Grant — a Republican! — on the hit TV show “Scandal,” will be in Atlanta on Sunday to help christen the Democratic presidential nominee’s Georgia campaign headquarters.

Goldwyn will appear from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. at the Castleberry Hill office, 217 Walker St. SW.

The actor, also famous for his role in the Patrick Swayze-Demi Moore movie “Ghost,” is a regular Clinton surrogate. He spoke at last month’s Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia and has traveled the country to stump for Clinton. He and “Scandal” creator Shonda Rhimes appeared together in a campaign ad, which you can see below.

The office opening is part of Clinton’s long-promised goal of having staff and an office in all 50 states and comes after she announced the new staff in the state. Republican Donald Trump, too, is staffing up in Georgia, amid signs he may be preparing a television campaign here.
