Stacey Dash has worked as an actress and a political commentator for Fox News.

Now she’s looking to add U.S. representative to her résumé.

Dash on Monday filed paperwork with the Federal Election Commission to run for California’s 44th District as a Republican.

Dash, who is most known for her role in the 1995 teen movie “Clueless” and her time with Fox News, which ended in January 2017, has expressed her interest in running for office earlier this month on Twitter.

The seat she seeks on her “Dash to D.C.” campaign is held by Nanette Diaz Barragán, who succeeded fellow Democrat Janice Hahn on Jan. 3, 2017.

The predominantly Hispanic district in Southern California covers cities such as Carson, Compton, North Long Beach, San Pedro and Watts.
