Actress and "Clueless" star Stacey Dash is reportedly considering a run for Congress as a Republican, she announced on Twitter.

Dash tweeted Friday that "a number of people" had suggested that she pursue a run for Congress, and asked her 564,000 Twitter followers for their opinions on a potential run for office.


"A number of people online and off have suggested I run for political office. I wanted to see what my online community thinks of this idea as I mull the possibilities. Thoughts?" Dash tweeted, accompanied by an image that claimed to be "paid for by the D2DC 'Testing the Waters' committee."

The actress issued a follow-up tweet Saturday morning, apparently satisfied with the response, announcing that she was considering a run.

"In response to numerous calls for me to run for office, I am considering a run for Congress. Would love to know what my fans and friends think," she tweeted.

The actress currently lives in California. Dash, an outspoken conservative, was fired from her position as a contributor at Fox News after she cursed on-air while commenting on former President Obama's attitude towards fighting terror.

"I didn't feel any passion from him," she said. "I feel like he could give a shit, excuse me, he could care less."
