Handsome US politician goes viral after announcing his candidacy for Congress

2017-04-25
The internet went into meltdown last week when Ammar Campa-Najjar announced he was running for Congress. The 28-year-old quickly gained attention for his handsome good looks, but it's his political prowess that's going to keep people interested. He deals primarily with public affairs, and he previously worked on Obama's 2012 Presidential campaign where he began his journey as a strict Democrat. In an interview with Buzzfeed, the rising star spoke about his sudden rise to fame, saying: "I mean, it’s flattering. I hope people focus on my ideas and not my looks." In a social media post announcing his candidacy, he wrote: "I'm proud to announce my candidacy for California's 50th Congressional District! Join the Campa campaign today. "My name might be on the ballot, but elections aren’t about candidates. They’re about you and me, becoming an #unstoppablewe -- unstoppable in face of adversity, greed, and corruption. It’s time to bring people back together, pave a path toward a unified future and show how truly indivisible we are. We need to fight for progress and win again, and #togetherwewill."
