Stacey Dash files papers for U.S. congressional run in California
As if her time as a Fox News contributor and political pundit didn’t give her a big enough platform, Stacey Dash is now eyeing a bigger role: U.S. Representative.
The Clueless star filed papers for a U.S. Congressional run with the Federal Election Commission on Monday announcing the formation of a principal campaign committee under the name “Dash to DC.” Stacey Dash is listed as the candidate, running as a Republican for a seat in the House of Representatives representing California’s 44th district.
The 44th district is in the South Los Angeles and Los Angeles Harbor areas and includes the cities of Carson, Compton, San Pedro, and Wilmington.
The news comes after Dash’s Feb. 9 tweet asking her followers what they thought of her running for political office, as she “mulled the possibilities.”
Dash and her representatives did not immediately reply to EW’s requests for comment.
