Stacey Dash, the Clueless alum, and conservative news pundit has filed the paperwork to run for a congressional seat in the state of California according to a report from Us Weekly. In a statement obtained by The Hills, the outspoken and often contentious, Dash, 51, filed the documents with the Federal Election Commission under the slogan, “Dash to DC.”
The Clueless alum plans to run as a Republican in the November 2018 election for California’s 44th Congressional district. Her area has the jurisdiction of cities like Compton, North Long Beach, San Pedro, and Watts.
At the moment, the district is run by the Democrat Nanette Barragan. On the 26th of February, Dash took to Twitter to state that her “formal statements are coming.”

Dash claimed she “wants to serve great people” of her district and emphasized the importance of her critics not to mock the areas she chooses to represent.
As you may know, Dash worked as a contributor for Fox News for three years and made headlines several times in the past for discussing the administration of former president Barack Obama in late 2016.
Dash said Barack “didn’t give a s*it” about terrorism. However, her contract with the organization was not renewed in January of 2017. In the same year, Dash, in her typically outspoken manner, said there was no need to have Black History Month and criticized the #OscarsSoWhite boycott.
During the awards ceremony in 2016, Chris Rock jokingly brought her out as the new director of a hypothetical “minority outreach program.” The moment gave credence to a Twitter meme showing Chrissy Teigen’s awkward cringing face.
Earlier in the month, Dash took to her Twitter account to ask her fans what they thought of having her run for public office. The mother of two asked her 564,000 followers if they thought it would be a good idea.
