The Bachelor's Ben Higgins Might Be Running for Office!

Ben Higgins, the latest star of The Bachelor franchise, might be running for a seat in the Colorado House of Representatives!

The 28-year-old reality star is “seriously considering a run” to represent House District 4, according to The Colorado Independent.

Ben, who is engaged to Lauren Bushnell, has already launched a website in which people can sign up for updates on his campaign. He will be getting the support of the Republicans and running against the current seat holder, Speaker Pro Tem Dan Pabon, a Democrat.

Willie Pinkston, the Republican nominee for the district, plans on stepping down if Ben decides to run.

“Whatever lies ahead, love, grace, and hope are ideals that guide my life. I will take them with me into my next adventure,” Ben said in a statement. “Lauren and I aren’t sure yet what that will be, but in terms of representing House District 4, Willie Pinkston is an amazing person and any decision I make regarding entering the race will be based on what is best for Willie, his family and for Lauren and me.”

Ben Higgins Responds to 'The Bachelor' Diversity Concerns

Ben Higgins and Lauren Bushnell look smitten with each other while stepping out for another post-engagement appearance on Tuesday (March 15) in New York City.

The 27-year-old The Bachelor star responded to concerns over the lack of diversity with the casting of the new The Bachelorette in a conference call with reporters.

“First off, JoJo as the bat, I think she deserves it,” Ben said (via Variety). “How they decide on The Bachelorette is not up to me. I didn’t even know I was in consideration to the next Bachelor until they called me.”

Lauren was asked if she had anything to add on the subject and she said, “No, I think Ben pretty much summed it up. Neither him or myself have anything to do with the decision-making.”
