Stacey Dash, 'Clueless' Actress And Former Fox News Contributor, Runs For Congress

Clueless actress Stacey Dash, who was also a former Fox commentator, is eyeing for the congressional seat in California.

Dash submitted her paperwork to Federal Election Commission on Monday, which showed that she would be running in the 44th district of California under the Republican party. Currently, Democrat Rep. Nanette Barragan holds the position.

"I live in the 44th unlike some who don't live in their districts. Thank you to those who offered their support," she tweeted on Monday.

Meanwhile, the election should be interesting, if one considers the time the Democrats have held the position in the district. Democrats have been ruling since 2012. Additionally, majority of the citizens of the 44th district, comprised of Watts, San Pedro, North Long Beach, and Compton, voted for Hillary Clinton back in the 2016 presidential elections, with 83 percent-12 percent.

Dash will run under the banner "Dash to DC." Meanwhile, she had earlier teased of a possible run, asking her followers what they think of the thought and asking them for feedback as she claimed she had people asking her to run. The 51-year-old also attached a campaign logo in her tweet.

Weeks later, Dash seemed to be hinting that she had finally decided and had started to work on this.

"Things are taking shape," Dash wrote on Feb. 22.

The following day, Dash said, "Soon."

She had been with Fox News for almost three years, but her contract was not renewed in 2016. Prior to this, Dash had been noted for her remarks on former President Barack Obama.

"I feel like he could give a shit, excuse me, he could care less," she said on Obama's ideals toward battling terrorism.

On the details of her platform, Dash had not released any statement as of writing.

Dash was known for her role Dionne Davenport in the 1995 film Clueless. Her character is the best friend of lead Alicia Silverstone's character Cher Horowitz. The movie had become iconic, but more so, one of its line, "As if!" had become famous.

With the election drawing near, many prominent people have started to express their desire of a government position. Law & Order: Special Victims Unit's Diane Neal also announced that she would be aiming for a congressional seat earlier this month. The 42-year-old Democrat will try her luck in snatching the seat for the 19th district of New York as an Independent but first will have to earn 3,500 signatures in order to join the November elections.
