PREVIOUSLY on January 18: Actor Ben Savage, who gained fame in the 1990s sitcom Boy Meets World, is making a bid for Congress.
According to papers filed today with the Federal Election Commission, Savage — a Democrat — is vying for the 30th District seat currently occupied by Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Burbank. Schiff is expected to run for U.S. Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s seat, although she has not yet made any formal announcement about her future.
