Sandra first made national news after she testified in Congress on the need for affordable access to birth control via the Affordable Care Act. Radio host and Lady-Parts-Expert Rush Limbaugh quickly denounced her as being a slut because she needed so many birth control pills because she was having so much sex (because we all know, that's how birth control works, right?).
Fluke responded to today's news of her potential House run by saying:
"I’m flattered that I’m being discussed as a potential candidate, especially for Rep. Waxman's seat, considering his incredible legacy," Fluke said. "A number of folks I respect very deeply have reached out today and encouraged me to run. I am strongly considering running. I’ll be making my decision soon."Waxman's district is a deep blue district but as California recently instituted a top-two primary system, the candidates on the November ballot could easily both be Democrats. So we'll see in the coming days and weeks which other Democratic contenders will be throwing their hat into the ring to succeed Congressman Waxman as well.
