It looks like Stacey Dash won’t be running for Congress after all! Just a couple months ago the actress announced she had filed paper work to run for a seat in California’s 44th district as a Republican.

On Friday the Clueless star announced on Twitter that she’s dropping out of the race saying, “At this point, I believe that the overall bitterness surrounding our political process, participating in the rigors of campaigning, and holding elected office would be detrimental to the health and wellbeing of my family.”

Shortly after the former Fox News contributor announced her candidacy back in February, members of the California Congressional delegation reportedly reached out to Compton Mayor Aja Brown asking her to run against Dash. With the 51-year-old out of they way, the race now comes down to Brown and Nanette Barragán, who is the current representative. We can’t wait to see who wins!
