Monday's HOT MIC
Because why not?
Sabato apparently filed SEC paperwork to run against Rep. Julia Brownley (D-Westlake Village). The D+7 district covers the southern central coast of California and most of Ventura County. The LA Times gushes (or is quick to point out, I'm not sure which) that "Sabato is a longtime actor best known for roles in “General Hospital” and “Melrose Place” and as a model for Calvin Klein underwear."
They also chart out what is increasingly becoming a successful template for those with political aspirations:
In recent years he has appeared in several reality television shows, including starring in “My Antonio,” a VH1 contest for which women competed for his affection, and “Dancing With the Stars.”
“Being a Republican and with proximity to the White House and Republican leadership, [Sabato's] going to be able to get more done — being in the majority, with his notoriety, for the residents of the 26th [Congressional] District,” said Charles Moran, who will be Sabato's fundraiser.
Sabato, a vocal supporter of the president, spoke on Trump's behalf at the Republican National Convention last year, insisting in an interview that President Obama was a Muslim.
