Actress Stacey Dash on Monday filed paperwork to run for a House seat as a member of the Republican Party, CNN reports.

Dash, 51, filed campaign documents with the Federal Election Commission that show she will run in California's 44th Congressional District, where Democratic Rep. Nanette Barragan currently holds the seat. The district consists of Compton, San Pedro, North Long Beach and Watts, and overwhelmingly voted for Democrat Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential election.

Dash, a contributor on Fox News for two years before being fired last January, frequently came under fire for comments she made on the network.

She was once suspended for cursing during a rant directed at President Obama, and was also scrutinized for expressing controversial views on Middle Eastern immigration and transgender rights.

Dash first tweeted about a political run Feb. 9.
