Stacey Dash is running for Congress in California

Clueless star and former Fox commentator Stacey Dash is running for Congress in California. 

According to CNN, the actress and outspoken Republican filed paperwork Monday to run in California's 44th district, which is currently represented by Democrat Nanette Barragán. 

The district, which includes Compton, Watts, San Pedro and North Long Beach, has long been represented by a Democrat. 

Dash has not publicly issued a statement. However, she did tease a potential run earlier this month. 

"A number of people online and off have suggested I run for political office," she tweeted Feb. 9. "I wanted to see what my online community thinks of this idea as I mull the possibilities. Thoughts?" 

On Feb. 22, she tweeted "Things are taking shape." The next day, she followed up with: "Soon."
