It’s official. The former actress most known for her role in the movie “Clueless” has officially thrown her hat into the political ring. CNN (@cnn) reports, Dash filed paperwork today to run in California’s 44th District. A district currently represented by Democrat Nannete Barragan.
The 44th District includes Compton, Watts, San Pedro and Long Beach. The 44th District has long been represented by a Democrat. Hilary Clinton easily won the Dem-heavy District over Repubican Candidate Donald Trump by a wide margin (83% – 12%) during the 2016 presidential election.
Since the “Clueless” days, Dash has mostly been seen on Fox News Network and other heavy-right leaning outlets, pushing the Trump agenda. Dash considers herself a Conservative though.
