Alyssa Milano shared that she is considering running for Congress in opposition to McClintock, according to The Daily Wire.

“I split my time between Truckee, Calif., and Bell Canyon, Calif., and the Republicans have basically had a strong arm there in the 4th District.”

“I would love to maybe consider flipping that seat blue.”

“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.”

“I’m basically gathering information right now, speaking to different consultants, speaking to the community.”

“Before I run, obviously I can’t do both at the same time.”

“So it’s just really going to be about timing.”

“My career in the arts changed life for my family, breaking us out of cyclical hardship.”

“When we talk about shifting our culture into a more secure, more equitable place, there’s really nothing that can do that like the arts.”

“I think that there’s a lot left to do, obviously, in particular gun violence prevention.”

“I’ve been an activist since I was 15 years old.”

“The first pictures of me in the White House are with Nancy Reagan. I’ve been at this a really long time.”

“I’m very hands-on, boots on the ground, as far as the work that I do.”

“And I would hope that anyone who’s considering running for office would be doing so from a place of service, which is where my heart is, rather than a place of power or to change up the system.”

“My intentions are to make the world a better place.”

From The Daily Wire:

Milano has spoken out on women’s issues, notably protesting the nomination of Justice Brett Kavanaugh and posing in a “Handmaid’s Tale” costume to decry abortion restrictions during a “Rise Up for Roe” pro-abortion tour.

She has been a prominent “#MeToo” voice and a strong supporter of abortion, revealing on her podcast “Sorry Not Sorry” in 2019 that she had two abortions in 1993.

“I’m Alyssa Milano and I’ve had an abortion. I control my own body,” she said at the start of the episode.

Milano later said, “I knew at that time I was not equipped to be a mother and so I chose to have an abortion. I chose. It was my choice and it was absolutely the right choice for me. It was not an easy choice. It was not something I wanted, but it was something that I needed, like most health care is.”

Milano reflected on what she would not have in her life if she had not gone through with the two abortions. “I would not have my children — my beautiful, perfect, loving, kind and inquisitive children — who have a mother who was so very, very ready for them,” she said.

“I would not have my career. I would not have the ability or platform I use to fight against oppression with all my heart,” she continued. “I would never have met my amazing husband, David, whose steadfast and immeasurable love for me sustains me through these terrifying times.”

“… [M]y life would be completely lacking all its great joys,” she said. “I would never had been free to be myself — and that’s what this fight is all about: freedom.”
