Winkler, aka Fonzie, retweeted Howard and wrote, "I'm with him."

"Happy Days" ran on ABC from 1974 to 1984 and was set in the 1950s and '60s in Milwaukee. The show followed the Cunningham family, their friends, and of course local baddie Arthur "Fonzie" Fonzarelli.


Not listed on the reunion page was actor Scott Baio who played Chachi. He's a vocal supporter of President Donald Trump but John Stamos is ready to step into the role.

Other casts that have reunited to help Wisconsin Democrats include NBC’s "Park & Recreation" and the cast of the 1987 film "The Princess Bride."
