Actor Antonio Sabato Jr. is Running for Congress in California and He Needs Your Help

Conservative actor Antonio Sabato Jr. was a vocal supporter of President Trump during the recent election, and he’s argued that his conservative beliefs have made it much harder for him to find work in Hollywood. That blatant bias has spurred him to do something that he didn’t think he’d ever do… run for political office.

The LA Times just revealed Sabato’s plans to run for Congress in a district that Democrats have held since 2013.

Actor Antonio Sabato Jr. is running for Congress, challenging Rep. Julia Brownley (D-Westlake Village), who represents the southern central coast and most of Ventura County, according to documents filed with the Federal Election Commission on Monday.

Attempts to reach the Republican candidate were unsuccessful Monday, but GOP strategist Charles Moran, who will serve as Sabato’s fundraiser, confirmed the run. Strategist Jeff Corless will serve as a top adviser…

Moran said Sabato has long been interested in politics and public policy, but his experiences at the convention prompted him to consider running for office. Issues he plans to focus on are veterans’ needs and substance abuse, Moran said.

“Being a Republican and with proximity to the White House and Republican leadership, he’s going to be able to get more done — being in the majority, with his notoriety, for the residents of the 26th [Congressional] District,” Moran said.

You likely know Sabato from his time on the soap opera General Hospital, or from his role on the 90’s hit show Melrose Place, or perhaps you noticed him back when he was a Calvin Klein underwear model. He’s also been in many B-movies over the years and now hopes to parlay that experience into a gig in Washington, D.C.

Sabato actually stands a real chance at winning in 2018 because his opponent Julia Brownley barely held on to the seat in 2016 and a candidate with the name recognition that Sabato enjoys is sure to have a leg up in both fundraising and in local politicking.

Here’s Sabato Jr. speaking at the 2016 RNC:

I am the supreme law of the United States. Originally comprising seven articles, I delineate the national frame of government. My first three articles entrench the doctrine of the separation of powers, whereby the federal government is divided into three branches: the legislative, consisting of the bicameral Congress; the executive, consisting of the President; and the judicial, consisting of the Supreme Court and other federal courts. Articles Four, Five and Six entrench concepts of federalism, describing the rights and responsibilities of state governments and of the states in relationship to the federal government. Article Seven establishes the procedure subsequently used by the thirteen States to ratify it. I am regarded as the oldest written and codified constitution in force of the world.
