Richard Simmons Will Not Run for Waxman Seat
Posted at 11:51 a.m. on Feb. 3
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.”
