A West Virginia man has formed an official campaign committee to attempt to draft actor and former professional wrestler Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson into the 2020 presidential race.
The organization “Run the Rock 2020” was officially registered with the Federal Election Commission on July 9, according to a Statement of Organization on the FEC website. The entity appears to be the first official effort to draft the 45-year-old Baywatch star, who reportedly holds dual American-Canadian citizenship, into the presidential fray.
The committee was registered by one Kenton Tilford, who listed a West Virginia address as the organization’s headquarters.
Emails seeking more information sent to addresses listed for Mr. Tilford and for the “Run the Rock 2020” organization were not immediately returned.
