Alyssa Milano Considers Running for Congress in 2024

Hollywood actress Alyssa Milano, 48, may trade in one acting environment for another as she considers leaving Hollywood for a potential House seat in the 2024 elections.

“I’m looking at California’s 4th District to potentially run against [Rep. Tom] McClintock, R-Calif.,” the actress-turned-activist told The Hill 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,” said Milano.

McClintock has served as the United States Representative for California’s 4th Congressional District since 2009 and was re-elected with 56% of the vote in November. Donald Trump also defeated President Biden by nine points in the District.

“I would love to maybe consider flipping that seat blue,” the “Insatiable” star continued. “It’s going to take someone with, I think, name recognition and deep pockets to be able to run against McClintock, and so I’m considering it. I’m basically gathering information right now, speaking to different consultants, speaking to the community.”

Milano indicated that a decision on the matter could be made after the 2022 midterm elections, as she is currently working on a number of projects, including a Netflix film she recently completed and a new installment of “Who’s the Boss.”

“Before I run, obviously I can’t do both at the same time,” she says of her acting work. “So it’s just really going to be about timing.”

Last month, the outspoken actress asked her 3.6 million Twitter followers if she should challenge McClintock.

She also gave Biden a favorable rating, stating that he has done a “really great job” thus far during his tenure in office, but lamented that “there is obviously a lot more work to be done, particularly in the area of gun violence prevention.”

Following the March shooting in Boulder, Colorado, in which ten people were killed, including a police officer, Milano wasted no time calling for changes to gun laws on Twitter and urging for gun violence to be “eradicated” through filibuster restructuring.
