Political involvement

Suppan gained some notoriety outside of baseball for appearing in a political advertisement alongside other celebrities, Patricia Heaton, Jim Caviezel, and Kurt Warner during the 2006 World Series. The ad aired in opposition to the Missouri Stem Cell Research and Cures Initiative Missouri Constitutional Amendment 2 (2006), which protects—in Missouri—stem cell research that is legal under federal law. However, the ad was often mischaracterized as a counter to an earlier ad featuring actor Michael J. Fox.[2] Fox's ad was to promote Senate candidate Claire McCaskill and particularly her support for expanded stem cell research on the federal level. The ad featuring Suppan did not mention McCaskill, her opponent (Jim Talent), or the issue of federal funding for stem cell research—the issues Michael J. Fox focused on in his ad. Rather, the Suppan ad focused directly on opposing Amendment 2—repeating the claims of Amendment 2 opponents. The timing of both ads during a World Series that featured the St. Louis Cardinals was intended to draw the particular attention of Missouri voters.
