Sandra Fluke wants to run for Congress. The women's rights activist has filed papers with the Federal Election Commission to seek endorsement of the California state Democratic Party.
Sandra Fluke is on her way to join Congress. The women's rights activist and former Georgetown law student has quietly filed for endorsement of the California state Democratic Party. She wants to get the retiring Rep. Henry Waxman's (D-Calif.) seat.
However, there are some other candidates vying for this seat. Two more candidates have also filed and paid fees for the same seat. Sandra Fluke has to face former Los Angeles mayoral finalist Wendy Greuel (D) and state Sen. Ted Lieu (D). And there could be more people fighting the good fight.
Fluke has not yet officially announced about her filing for the state party's endorsement. But a state party delegate and the official website of the state Democratic Party confirmed that Fluke has paid a fee and filed an endorsement. She will appear at the ballot this weekend.
The endorsement process for the state Democratic Party started on Sunday afternoon. It will reach its climax next month at the state party convention.
Update: Sandra Fluke has just announced her candidacy for CA State Senate via her official twitter account.
