Popular 90’s Child Actor Has Sights Set on Adam Schiff’s Seat: Report


Actor Ben Savage, best known for playing the lead role of Cory Matthews in the beloved 90’s sitcom “Boy Meets World,” has his sights set on a Congressional seat — one that is currently occupied by Adam Schiff.

According to FEC filings made on Jan. 18, the 42-year-old actor made his bid official for Congress.

Savage will be running as a Democrat in California’s 30th District seat.

It is worth noting that, while Schiff technically occupies that seat currently, he is widely expected to make a play for Sen. Diane Feinstein’s seat, according to Deadline. Feinstein has not officially announced what’s next for her yet.

Savage, for his part, however, has been relatively mum on this bid for Congress.

“Ben is still making decisions and always looking for opportunities to give back and serve the community,” Savage’s representative Justin Baxter told EW.

Not just that, but Savage appears to be a non-factor on Twitter, a curious choice for any prospective politician.

On Twitter, an account that appears to be Savage’s (it is unverified) hasn’t tweeted since 2018.

However, Savage does appear to be more active on Instagram, but his profile did appear to be suffering some technical issues that made it difficult to look up.

Digging further, there’s still no site or page up denoting Savage’s pending run for Congress.

Savage does have a site up, but it’s about his failed campaign for West Hollywood City Council.

While Savage’s bid for Schiff’s seat will undoubtedly be a completely different beast than running for City Council, Savage’s past failed campaign still provides an interesting glimpse into the kind of campaign he could potentially run.

“I am running for City Council because there are serious challenges ahead and West Hollywood deserves sensible, honest and strong leadership to face them,” Savage posted on his West Hollywood City Council site.
