Actor Morgan Freeman gives $1M to pro-Obama group

Posted: Updated:

WASHINGTON (AP) — Actor Morgan Freeman has contributed $1 million to help re-elect President Barack Obama.

Freeman gave the money to Priorities USA Action, a "super" political action committee.

The actor says in a statement that Obama has done a "remarkable job in historically difficult circumstances." He says that includes winding down the Iraq war, reforming Wall Street and protecting health care.

Several Hollywood figures have given to the pro-Obama group, including director Steven Spielberg and producer Jeffrey Katzenberg. 

The super PAC says it will release a full list Friday of donors who gave in June.
