This is my Congressman.

Should I run against him?

From The Hill:

Actor-turned-activist Alyssa Milano may seek to transition from Hollywood to the House, saying she’s “considering” a congressional run in 2024.

“I’m looking at California’s 4th District to potentially run against [Rep. Tom] McClintock (R),” Milano told ITK 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,” the former “Insatiable” star said.

McClintock won reelection last year with 56 percent of the vote. Then-President Trump beat President Biden in the district by nine points.

“I would love to maybe consider flipping that seat blue,” Milano said.

Dream on, Alyssa, dream on.

Truckee, CA, which is part of District 4, is within Nevada County, and they regularly attempt to secede from the State of California in order to form the State of Jefferson. So, Truckee may welcome Milano’s property taxes, but they certainly won’t welcome her running for public office. Rep. Tom McClintock has held the seat for 12 years because he isn’t in his district part time. He actually lives there, knows the community, and understands their needs. McClintock doesn’t just spout off about politics on Twitter, or protest at the Supreme Court confirmation hearings of judges he doesn’t like.

Mark my words, Milano will be laughed off her first stump speech. I’d actually pay money for that debate, because McClintock would run rhetorical circles around her and probably use words she’d need to look up in the dictionary. Memorizing the Constitution like lines in a script is not the same as actually living it; and McClintock not only talks the talk, he walks
