Usually Hollywood figures lean to the left, but not so with TV star Drew Carey. A group of libertarian conservatives is trying to convince him to run in the Ohio Republican senate primary and hopefully defeat Democratic incumbent Sherrod Brown, Politico reports
No clear-cut Republican candidates have surfaced yet for the election. Conservative activist Josiah Schmidt has set up a website and a Facebook page to draw Carey into the race.
Carey hails from Cleveland, but currently lives in Los Angeles as host of "The Price is Right."
Carey hasn’t commented about his plans. But Schmidt tells Politico the Reason Foundation, a libertarian think tank, has agreed to reach out to Carey about a possible run.
"Carey's outspoken libertarian-conservative policy advocacy, most notably through the Reason Foundation, has proven his credentials as someone who could be trusted to spare no sacred cows in his fight to reduce the size and role of government,” Schmidt said.
