Dean Cain Mulls Congressional Run in Heart of Hollywood
It's a bird ... it's a plane ... it's a California Congressman?
Dean Cain, the star of The New Adventures of Lois & Clark, is considering a political run in the heart of Hollywood. The timing of such a move, though, isn't clear yet to the Princeton graduate.
Cain has his eyes set on the state's 33rd District. He attended Santa Monica High School so his connection to the region is personal.
At some point in time, at a later date, it would be interesting, perhaps. Yes,” Cain said in a May 3 interview at the Washington Hilton, where he was attending the White House Correspondents’ Dinner as a guest of RealClearPolitics.
Longtime Democratic Rep. Henry A. Waxman unleashed chaos in the region in January, when he announced his retirement. Despite the fact that Beverly Hills, Bel Air, Malibu and Santa Monica fall within the district lines, no ambitious Tinseltown stars have jumped into the race.
Cain describes himself as conservative on subjects like the budget and individual liberty. When it comes to social issues he calls himself "very, very" left of center.
