Actress and Democrat party activist Alyssa Milano confirmed she is considering a run for Congress.
“I am confirming that it is possible that I will run for office in 2024,” Milano told the LA Times.
Moments ago, Milano re-tweeted Colleen Boland who wrote:
I never wanted to live in California until now.
could never be tagged as “one of those celebrity candidates.” She’d be a bonafide #ForThePeople candidate. Smart as a whip, energy level to die for, and courage.
Run Alyssa, run.
“I’m looking at California’s 4th District to potentially run against [Rep. Tom] McClintock (R),” the “Who’s the Boxx” actress confirmed on Tuesday.
“I split my time between Truckee, Calif., and Bell Canyon, Calif., and the Republicans have basically had a strong arm there in the 4th District,” Milano explained. “I would love to maybe consider flipping that seat blue.”
“It’s going to take someone with, I think, name recognition and deep pockets to be able to run against McClintock, and so I’m considering it,” she added “I’m basically gathering information right now, speaking to different consultants, speaking to the community.”
Milano said she expects to make a decision before the 2022 midterm elections.
Milano teased last month on Twitter:
Congressman McClintock was one of the 63 republicans to oppose Asian Hate Crimes bill.
This is my Congressman.
Should I run against him?
