Dog the Bounty Hunter is the latest celebrity wading into politics as the reality TV star spent a few days in Georgia at the end of July stumping for gubernatorial hopeful Michael Williams, Politico Magazine reported Tuesday.

Dog, whose real name is Duane Chapman, filmed ads, made fundraising calls, delivered sermons, and also spoke at a hotel ballroom praising Williams during his time in Georgia. He was joined by his wife, Beth, who also starred on their long-running A&E show that ended in 2012, "Dog the Bounty Hunter."

Williams, an unknown in the open race, thinks having Chapman's support will "convey law-and-order credibility to Republican primary voters," said Politico. Lt. Gov. Casey Cagle and Secretary of State Brian Kemp are his two top opponents.

Williams, a Pro-Trump loyalist and two-term state senator, entered the race in June. He's a businessman who once owned a chain of Sport Clips barber shops and loaned his own campaign $1 million.

"People want someone willing to take a stand for what they believe, someone who will relentlessly pursue fearless conservative reform," he said in his announcement. "If you want more politics as usual, vote for my opponents. If you want fearless conservative reform, vote for Michael Williams."

Williams has stood out in the race for his bombastic actions. At the Republican convention in June, he said in his speech someone attempted to bribe him to give up his run, and days later, he attended a "March Against Sharia," where he appeared in a photo with heavily armed members of an anti-government group during a rally.
