California Conservatives Launch Petition to Push Actor James Woods to Run for Governor

Is Hollywood star James Woods plotting to run for Governor of California? If conservative activist Melanie Morgan and legions of supporters have their way, the answer is a resounding yes. Morgan, who is behind the newly launch petition to push Woods to run says, “Californians deserve a choice in this year’s crucial election and it’s a mistake to allow Gavin Newsom to cakewalk right into the governorship without a fight.”


Washington Times reports:

James Woods, governor of California? Why not? The Golden State has a long history of electing leaders from the deep end of the thespian pool. From Ronald Reagan to Arnold Schwarzenegger, Californian voters actually seem to enjoy casting ballots for Republican actors,” reads a petition launched Tuesday, which indeed is calling upon the politically attuned and aggressive Mr. Woods to throw his hat in the ring.

“An effort to shake up the California governor’s race by placing James Woods on the ballot is gathering steam. The online signature-gathering effort intends to assist fed-up Californians in taking a stand against one-party rule and the increasing likelihood that two Democrats will appear on November’s gubernatorial ballot amid a Republican shutout,” says talk radio host and conservative activist Melanie Morgan, a Marin County resident who is coordinating the effort to recruit Mr. Woods.

Mr. Woods, who staunchly supports President Trump, might prove a formidable foe. He has over 1 million Twitter followers, and his opinions are well-calibrated, timely, frequent and provocative.

Amid the petition launch, Woods called for the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) to be phased out.

“End completely, build the wall, defund sanctuary cities, end chain migration, enforce voter ID, and deport all lawbreakers. Democrats never listened to us when they were in control. Wake up, Republicans. You have the power. Use it, for God’s sake!”, tweeted Woods.

Woods followed up his tweet on DACA with a warning: “If you fold on immigration, you are a one term president.”

Woods has not only been one of Hollywood’s most vocal supporters of President Trump, but has amassed a huge following of over one-million Twitter followers by both touting the administration’s accomplishments and expertly trolling Democrats.

Woods recently blasted Senator Jeff Flake (R-AZ) after the outgoing lawmaker branded attendees of Trump rallies “spasms of a dying party.”

“You mean the party that has the Presidency, the House, the Senate, the Supreme Court, the majority of State Legislatures, the majority of State Governors, and is poised the steamroll over the broke Democrats in 2018, 2020, and 2024? You mean THAT dying party? ?”

As The Gateway Pundit‘s Cristina Laila reported, Woods recently called out ‘groping Joe Biden,’ amid speculation the former Vice-President is eyeing a presidential bid.

James Woods tweeted a picture of former Vice President Joe Biden grabbing a child’s face with a caption, “Hope this guy runs in 2020… then he hash tagged #GropingJoe.

Woods has yet to comment on the petition, leaving his millions of fans guessing about his next move.
