Richard Simmons Will Not Run for Waxman Seat

Not that he was on anyone’s radar in the first place, but fitness guru (and Roll Call favorite) Richard Simmons will not run for Rep. Henry A. Waxman’s west Los Angeles-based House seat.

Responding to a query tweet from this reporter, Simmons wrote back, “I think not lol.”

 

Simmons’ fitness studio, Slimmons, is based in Beverly Hills. Simmons is somewhat active in politics. In the past he has testified on Capitol Hill on childhood obesity and he was a source of hope for discouraged members and staffers during October’s shutdown.
