“Boy Meets World” star Ben Savage formally announced on Monday a 2024 campaign to replace Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), who is running for Senate.
“Together, we can do better,” Savage said in a post to Instagram. “I am a proud Californian, union member and longtime resident of District 30 who comes from a family of unwavering service to our country and community. I firmly believe in standing up for what is right, ensuring equality and expanding opportunities for all.”
“I’m running for Congress because it’s time to restore faith in government by offering reasonable, innovative and compassionate solutions to our country’s most pressing issues,” Savage continued.
“And it’s time for new and passionate leaders who can help move our country forward. Leaders who want to see the government operating at maximum capacity, unhindered by political divisions and special interests.”
Savage filed paperwork to run as a Democrat in California’s 30th Congressional District, which reaches from West Hollywood to Pasadena, in January. He joins several other Democrats who have entered the race, including California Assemblymember Laura Friedman, former Los Angeles City Attorney Mike Feuer, and Maebe A. Girl, a drag queen seeking to become the first transgender, “non-binary” member of Congress.
The candidates are jumping into the House contest as Schiff sets his focus on the Senate. In particular, he is running to replace Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), who says she is not seeking re-election in 2024 after three decades in the seat.
