Alyssa Milano may be hoping to charm voters.
The former “Charmed” star, 48, told The Hill’s "In The Know" blog Tuesday that she’s “considering” running for Congress in 2024.
“I’m looking at California’s 4th District to potentially run against (Republican Rep. Tom) McClintock,” the New York City-born actress and activist said.
Milano told "In The Know" that she divides her time in The Golden State between Truckee and Bell Canyon “and the Republicans have basically had a strong arm there in the 4th District.”
The “Who’s the Boss?” actress aid she “would love to maybe consider flipping that seat blue” — referencing McClintock’s successful reelection bid last year, which secured 56% of the vote, according to the blog.
“It’s going to take someone with, I think, name recognition and deep pockets to be able to run against McClintock, and so I’m considering it,” said Milano, noting she’s currently “gathering information” and in communication with “different consultants” and “the community.”
Acknowledging that she currently has a lot on her plate, including a “Boss” reboot, Milano told the blog she intends to decide on the potential run after the 2022 midterms.
Those following Milano closely shouldn’t be shocked by her political ambitions.
Back in 2017, it was announced that the “Insatiable” actress would star in and develop the Lifetime comedy series “Alyssa Milano for Mayor,” which is now listed as a TV movie on IMDb.
Off-screen, in 2018, she said diving into the political pool would be part of her “10-year plan,” according to "In The Know," and protested Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation. The following year, the “Sorry Not Sorry” podcast host and author said that joining politics is “something that I think about,” and testified at a shadow hearing supporting the ratification of the Equal Rights Amendment, the column reports.
Milano sought the input of her 3.6 million Twitter followers last month about her potential political bid.
“Congressman McClintock was one of the 63 republicans to oppose Asian Hate Crimes bill,” she tweeted. “This is my Congressman. Should I run against him?”
