As Governor Jerry Brown is widely expected to win reelection in November, the California Democratic Party appears to already be turning its focus to 2018. Friends of George Clooney told the Daily Mirror that the Democratic Party is courting the actor to run for governor.
Clooney, 53, is marrying British lawyer Amal Alamuddin in September but is expected to launch a political career soon after. The actor is friends with President Barack Obama and talk has already surfaced of Clooney running for the White House.
In recent years, Clooney has focused his political work on humanitarian missions and gay rights campaigns.
The Hollywood star is the son of Nick Clooney, a longtime journalist who unsuccessfully ran for Congress in 2004.
