TV news anchor Christina Pascucci joins crowded California Senate race

Los Angeles TV news anchor Christina Pascucci announced Wednesday she is running for the Senate, joining an already crowded race for the late Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s (D-Calif.) seat.

“I have some breaking news: I am running for U.S. Senate,” Pascussi said in an announcement on X, formerly known as Twitter. “It’s time to stop the fighting in Washington, and focus on reaching across the aisle to put people over politics. I believe in the promise of California. I hope you do too.”

In a video message, Pascucci referred to her years of experience reporting on “important news stories.”

“The past 15 years I’ve been alongside many of you on the front lines of thousands of important news stories, and I’ve interviewed countless politicians,” she said. “What I’ve come to know through that is our political leadership is not helping to keep that dream in reach for so many of us, and there’s a whole plan to do it.”

Politico first reported Pascucci’s Senate bid.
