Yep. Antonio Sabato Jr. is running for Congress, challenging Rep. Julia Brownley who represents the southern central coast and most of Ventura County.
GOP strategist Charles Moran, who will serve as Sabato’s fundraiser, confirmed the run.
Sabato is an actor best known for roles in General Hospital and Melrose Place and as a model for Calvin Klein underwear. He has appeared in several reality TV shows, including starring in My Antonio, a VH1 contest for which women competed for his affection, and Dancing With the Stars.
Sabato was a vocal supporter of Trump during the 2016 presidential campaign and spoke on his behalf at the Republican National Convention. In an interview, he said at the time that then President Obama was a Muslim and afterward said that he was blacklisted by Hollywood producers because of his support for Trump.
Moran said Sabato has long been interested in politics and public policy,
“Being a Republican and with proximity to the White House and Republican leadership, he’s going to be able to get more done — being in the majority, with his notoriety, for the residents of the 26th [Congressional] District.“
See below what I consider to be Sabato’s only good work on film ever. (And THE BEST Janet has ever looked too, btw. All the work of late photographer Herb Ritt‘s in his best video ever.)
Watch. (And #Resist)
