5 Celebrities Running for Office after Trump Win: Can You Guess Who They Are?
Antonio Sabàto Jr.
Sabato Jr. is an Italian-born American actor and model. Born in Italy and raised in the United States, Sabàto first became known as a Calvin Klein model and for his role on the soap opera General Hospital. He has continued appearing in films and television series throughout the 1990s and 2000s, and has appeared and competed in a number of reality television shows, including My Antonio in 2009, in which various women competed to become his girlfriend.
Sabato Jr. was one of the few Hollywood Republicans to back Trump over Hillary Clinton during the White House race. Should he win the Republican primary as expected, Sabato Jr. will be running against Democratic Rep. Julia Brownley, a three-term congresswoman in the Southern California district. He’ll face long odds since The Cook Political Report ranks the district as D+7, which means the district’s presidential vote leans 7 percentage points more Democratic than the national result.
