Ben Savage, Star Of ‘Boy Meets World,’ Is Running for Congress

Boy Meets World actor Ben Savage has formally declared his intention to run for Congress in the seat now held by Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Burbank, who is now competing for the seat of departing U.S. Sen. Dianne Feinstein.

The actor who portrayed Cory in the legendary sitcom highlighted his credentials as a “proud Californian, union member, and longstanding resident of District 30 who hails from a family of unflinching commitment to our country and community.” His older brother Fred Savage was featured in The Wonder Years and currently directs television.

Savage stated in an Instagram post, “I’m running for Congress because it’s time to restore faith in government by delivering sensible, inventive, and compassionate answers to our nation’s most pressing problems. And it’s time for fresh, committed leaders who can help advance our nation. Leaders who desire the government to operate at its fullest ability, unimpeded by political differences and special interests.”

Priorities mentioned by Savage include public safety, homelessness, and affordable housing.
