George Takei's Bid for Congress Was an April Fools' Day Joke

The legendary Star Trek actor said on March 31 that he would run for Congress in 2018 against Republican Devin Nunes for a the seat in California’s 22nd District.

Celebs like Sophia Bush and Mark Ruffalo tweeted their support for Takei after he made his announcement.

On April Fools’ Day, George tweeted, “No, I’m not running for Congress. Happy 4/1! But Jon Ossoff is on 4/18. Help him win at http://electjon.com . Let’s flip Congress in ’18.”
