Alyssa Milano confirms she plans to run for Congress in 2024 – Deadline

Alyssa Milano hasn’t hidden her politics for quite some time: She’s a progressive who supports Joe Biden and Kamala Harris, transgender rights, voting rights, ERA and gun control. She has used her Instagram account to express these opinions for years to her 3 million followers. Now maybe she’s gearing up for a bigger scene.

Milano teased a race against U.S. Representative Tom McClintock (R) last month to his millions of Twitter followers.

“Congressman McClintock was one of 63 Republicans to oppose the Asian hate crimes bill,” Milano wrote on May 20. “He’s my congressman. Should I run against him?

The actor turned activist confirmed at the Hill on Tuesday that she “considers” a candidacy for Congress in 2024.

“I’m looking at the 4th District of California to potentially run against McClintock,” said Milano.

“I split my time between Truckee, Calif., And Bell Canyon, Calif., And the Republicans basically had a strong arm over there in the 4th district,” the former Charm, Who is the boss? and Insatiable star told The Hill.

The 4th Congressional District includes the counties of Northern California, Alpine County, Amador County, Calaveras County, El Dorado County, Mariposa County, and Tuolumne County, as well as parts of Fresno County, Madera County, Placer County, and Nevada County, where Truckee is located.

McClintock is a staunch Republican whose views clash with those of Milan on many topics, including his pet peeve, immigration. The congressman would likely seek to portray Milan as an outsider from Tinseltown in the 4th arrondissement, someone whose values ​​are out of step with those of its residents. She, however, sees her fame as an advantage.

“It’s going to take someone with, I think, name recognition and deep pockets to be able to run against McClintock,” Milano said on Tuesday, “and so I’m thinking about it.”

In a statement to Deadline, Milano said: “I confirm that it is possible that I will run for office in 2024.”

The actor is an executive producer and stars in a Who is the boss? restart as well as do it Sorry not sorry podcast – which addresses social, political and cultural issues – and also publishes a book of the same name in October. It’s a lot. She hopes to make the decision to run after the 2022 midterm elections.

“Before I run I obviously can’t do both at the same time,” she told The Hill of her other efforts, “So it will really be a question of timing.”
