Actor Ben Savage, best known for starring on the hit ABC sitcom “Boy Meets World,” is set to make a bid for Congress.
According to paperwork filed with the Federal Election Commission Wednesday, Savage’s run as a Democrat will be in California’s 30th District seat, currently held by Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Burbank.
Per Deadline, Schiff is expected to run for US Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s seat, however, that has yet to be confirmed.
California’s 30th district contains neighborhoods such as Burbank, Pasadena and West Hollywood.
The 42-year-old said he decided to run because “people have become disappointed with the direction the city is heading.”
“I have seen this city grow to become one of the most thriving cities in the country – with extraordinary restaurants, hotels, nightlife, and culture,” he said in a statement at the time.
Savage portrayed Cory Matthews on “Boy Meets World” from 1993-2000 and its spinoff “Girl Meets World” from 2014-2017. During his on-screen stint, he graduated with a degree in Political Science from Stanford University.
As part of his studies, Savage interned for then-Sen. Arlen Specter, R-Pa.
Taking to Instagram, Savage wrote, “The best is yet to come.”
