Stacey-Dash

The not so popular among Black Americans Actress and conservative Stacey Dash has launched her congressional campaign for California’s 44th Congressional District.

Dash appeared on Ari Melber’s MSNBC show, The Beat, to explain why she wants to head to Washington and how she plans to win an election as a Republican in a district that is overwhelmingly Democratic (and supported Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential election).

“The Democratic Party is not the only party that can represent them,” Dash told Melber. “I’m going to be a catalyst for change. I’m going to make sure that everyone in my district is given the opportunity to achieve their God given right, the American Dream.”

When Melber asked Dash about her stance on Dreamers and whether or not she agreed with Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ recent announcement that the Justice Department is suing the state of California over its immigration policy, she replied by saying,

“I think that we have to respect law enforcement, we have to respect laws,” she said. Melber asked Dash to elaborate, but the actress said she didn’t have any more to say on the complicated topic. “That’s it,” she added.

If Dash wins the election she will represent areas including Watts, Carson, Compton, Wilmington, San Pedro, and parts of Long Beach.
