A decision by the former “Clueless”co-star and Fox News contributor, Stacey Dash, run for Congress shaken up the race for the Los Angeles area of residence, with Compton’s high-profile mayor is now challenging democratic incumbent Rep. Nanette Barragan.

Dash, running as a Republican, to win the long faces odds, to be sure.

The seat is a democratic stronghold. Hillary Clinton won in 2016, nearly 85 percent of the vote. And the district has only about 10 percent of the registered Republican voters.

But s entry into the race Dash ‘, at least some of the unnecessary attention for the Democrats, when you consider Compton mayor Aja Brown has Barragan also results in a party primary challenge for the established.

Several California Democratic sources say that the party keep track of their time and resources to the race and stay focused on trying to win a handful of GOP-held house seats by Orange County — is an important part of the party’s grand plan, about 26 seats, the control over the chamber.

And there’s the long-shot possibility that Barragan and Brown could primary the split vote in June, sending Dash to the elections in November to compete against the other top place.

As late entries, brown, and Dash each have to hurry to put together a Federal-level campaign mode and money in front of the elementary school, in the state’s 44th district.

“The money-machine against me is” ramp-up ” after this week, according to an announcement,” Dash filing paperwork tweeted after a short run.

She tweeted earlier this week, has the flu but slows down the start of your campaign, that “a donation to my campaign through my Website is the best, the liberal money machine is what I need to fight.”

The 35-year-old Brown, who in 2013 was Compton, the youngest mayor, might have an easier time.

Their successful efforts to reduce the homicide and unemployment in the South of Los Angeles, a city notorious for gang crime, has.gained the support of the Compton native as rapper Kendrick Lamar, and tennis stars Venus and Serena William, whose potential endorsements Brown could help boost the name recognition and fundraising ability

The star-athletes in 2016, for example, uses the group, the Williams-sister-Fund, a resource center in Compton, Yetunde Price named after the older sister, the killing in a 2003 drive-by shooting on the streets of their home town. And Vogue magazine profiled win your 2013 mayoral.

Brown dismissed speculation that the Dash entry in the race was a motivating factor in their decision to lead, hit their overall goal is to continue the served under, and bring fresh, new leadership to Congress.

The California Democrats, however, speculate that Brown was eying the seat, and uses the hyphen candidacy as a cover, in order to challenge a Democratic incumbent.

“My decision in this race was not tailored to one person, but to the 700 000 residents of the 44th electoral district,” she said earlier this week. “There is no doubt that our nation is in difficult times. … I believe that our nation is on the path to a better future. But to recognize that these visions of a greater nation, we need the next generation of leaders to come forward.”

Jessica Levinson, professor at Loyola Law School in Los Angeles, Brown is a serious candidate is elected thinks with a solid-office-record-on that can run, but you can ask, the power of the big-name endorsements.

“It could be great to say,” My favorite tennis star is the vote for you.’ But not to crowd this approval, a well-run campaign and a message to voters that says, “This is what I want to do to improve their lives,” said Levinson, whose focus includes election law, campaign Finance and ballot initiatives.

Brown’s campaign did not say whether it is a comment for this story. Dash could not be reached for comment.

Dash, 51, co-starred in the 1995 coming-of-age Comedy, “Clueless” before working as a Fox News on-air contribution, up to the year 2016. They voted for Democrats Barack Obama in 2008 presidential election, then the Republicans will be Mitt Romney in 2012.

Barragan recently won endorsementd from the state Democratic party and California democratic Sen. Kamala Harris. And she has support in Washington from the Latino members of the House Democratic Caucus, including fellow California Rep. Linda Sanchez.

Democratic strategists in California confirm that Barragan show great name recognition — of the misery, a freshman Democrat in a Republican-controlled Congress.

But you also claim she has a solid first term, including the proposed legislation to require sexual harassment training on Capitol Hill, while critics argue, your only other post was on the Hermosa Beach, the Council, outside the 44th district, and that her management style has created some turbulence in her office in Washington.

“We are facing great challenges here at home and a terrible President in the White house that has kept our communities, and our values are under constant assault,” Barragan told Fox News on Saturday, through your district office. “We must continue to fight for economic equality, environmental justice and protection for our dreamers.”

Recent population figures show the district consists of approximately 15 percent of African-Americans and 70 percent of the Hispanic, the power to win the battle, the minority vote hard for all three candidates, and a few others in the race.

Brown is African-American, Barragan’s parents are Mexican immigrants. Dash’s mother is Mexican-American and her father is African-American.

“The voters say, every two years, you want that someone say new in the Congress, but we keep reelect incumbents,” Levinson. “They are hard to beat. At some point it is simply a voter looking for the ballot and see the word “representatives” next to your name.”
