As the star of the comedy kid’s show “Boy Meets World,” Ben Savage has officially filed paperwork with the government as a means to announce his interest in making a bid for a congressional seat.
Savage is repeatedly seeking to carry out a campaign to run for the 30th District in the U.S. House of Representatives for California if current Democratic Representative Adam Schiff chooses to make a big for Senator Dianne Feinstein’s seat in the Senate.
Reportedly, Rob Pyers with California Target Book seemed to be the very first to go public with the information that Savage was possibly going after the seat currently being held by Schiff, along with a tweet coming from CATargetBOT.

This past November, Savage attempted a run for local office in an effort to hold a spot on the L.A. City Council, but his campaign fell through. Savage ended up securing a solid seventh place, securing 6.32% of the total vote. He had lived in West Hollywood for a period of eighteen years prior to attempting to run for office.
On his campaign website created for the run for West Hollywood city council, Savage explained that he was “running for City Council because there are serious challenges ahead and West Hollywood deserves sensible, honest and strong leadership to face them.”
“The city is facing serious challenges around public safety, struggling businesses, inflation and the cost of housing. We need new leaders with a fresh perspective who are ready to begin tackling these issues,” he stated. “We need to restore faith in city government by offering reasonable, innovative and compassionate solutions to the city’s most pressing issues.”
“We need to increase and expand access to all the great opportunities West Hollywood affords, by ensuring that every member of the community has the tools they need to succeed,” he claimed.
Back in November, a report from Politico stated that a number of sources stated that Representative Adam Schiff was not planning to go try and go after the role held by the Democrat party in the House. Instead, he was going to start setting his sights on a possible bid for a seat in the Senate.
As of writing, Senator Feinstein has not yet announced any plans to step down from her Senate seat in California, but at least two other Democratic congresswomen seem to be making preparations to get into the race in hopes that she decides to retire and close out her career in politics.
