Sandra Fluke, the Georgetown Law student who became an instant celebrity when she was denied the opportunity to testify at a hearing on Obamacare’s contraception requirements, is strongly considering running for Congress.
“I’m flattered that I’m being discussed as a potential candidate,” Fluke said. “A number of folks I respect very deeply have reached out today and encouraged me to run. I am strongly considering running.”
Fluke would run for Henry Waxman’s House seat, as the longtime Democrat announced he would retire this year.
“A sincere thank you to liberal champion @WaxmanClimate for 40 years of service to our community in LA,” Fluke tweeted.
