The internet has gone bonkers for Ammar Campa-Najjar, the politician who is running for Congress in California’s 50th Congressional District.
Writes Campa-Najjar on Facebook:
Join the Campa campaign today.
My name might be on the ballot, but elections aren’t about candidates. They’re about you and me, becoming an #unstoppablewe — unstoppable in face of adversity, greed, and corruption.
It’s time to bring people back together, pave a path toward a unified future and show how truly indivisible we are. We need to fight for progress and win again, and #togetherwewill.
When BuzzFeed brought up his raaaather electrifying good looks, he was quick to say:
“I hope people focus on my ideas and not my looks.”
Good luck with THAT.
“I’m the candidate,” he says. “The real casanova of my family is my brother, so take a look at him. He’s the good-looking one.”
Yeah, I’m gonna need to see the receipts, Ammar. (via Queerty)
