GH Star Antonio Sabato, Jr. to Run for Congress

Antonio Sabato, Jr. speaking at last year’s Republican National Convention.

Yes, General Hospital fans, Antonio Sabato, Jr. is set to join the many actors who’ve tried their hand at getting a chance to serve our country by representing the people.

A Political Appetizer

Sabato, Jr., who played wildly popular fan fave Jagger Cates on GH for three years, filed documents Friday stating that he’s running to represent California’s 26th district, reported We Love Soaps.

The actor spoke out often in support of President Trump during the latter’s campaign for that office. He even spoke at the Republican National Convention that saw Trump accept his party’s nomination as its choice to represent it in the 2016 presidential election.

“Brownley is a very junior member in the minority party,” Moran said of Sabato Jr.’s incumbent Democratic opponent. “Contrast that against … Antonio Sabato Jr…you have somebody who is a member of the majority party who has good relations with the Trump administration.”

Not Your Average Politician

“Charles Moran, his [Sabato’s] top fundraiser, told CNN on Monday, [he] will likely use his connections with the Trump administration–and the President himself–to differentiate himself with other Republicans in the district and the seat’s current Democratic occupant, Rep. Julia Brownley,” We Loves Soaps reported.

For a list of Sabato’s controversial statements during last year’s presidential campaign season, see the aforementioned We Love Soaps article.
