A campaign committee named 'Run the Rock 2020' has filed with the Federal Election Commission after the 'Baywatch' star said that he might give up his life as an actor to run for president.
It seems like there are many people who want Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson to become the President of the United States. A campaign committee named "Run the Rock 2020" has formally filed to draft the 45-year-old actor for president.
According to Federal Election Commission, the paperwork was filed by a man named Kenton Tilford from Wheeling, West Virginia on Sunday, July 9. "I'm just a private citizen unaffiliated with Mr. Johnson," he told Daily Mail. "But I've talked with many who believe he can deliver the leadership America needs."
"While there has been significant discussion of the possibility of The Rock running for President, there is currently no avenue for supporters to channel their energies and get Mr Johnson to notice the groundswell of support he has in the grassroots," Kenton continued. "By starting 'Run the Rock 2020', I hope to harness that energy and help persuade Mr Johnson that America needs his leadership now."
Dwayne previously said that he might run for president. "I think it's a real possibility," he said. "A year ago, it started coming up more and more. There was a real sense of earnestness, which made me go home and think, 'Let me really rethink my answer and make sure I am giving an answer that is truthful and also respectful.' I didn't want to be flippant [and say] 'We'll have three days off for a weekend! No taxes!' "
The "San Andreas" star later revealed whether he would actually run for president in 2020 during an appearance on "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon" in May. "I'm so incredibly flattered. There's a national poll that just came out this past week that brought together Republicans and Democrats, saying that I would beat Donald Trump if we had an election today to become President Trump," he told Jimmy Fallon, before adding, "Three-and-a-half years is a long ways away, so we'll see."
