Even the folks at Fruit of the Loom have taken notice that Sen. Barbara Boxer’s political career has been anything but brief. Her surprise video announcement today that she would not run for reelection gave notice that California would have an open Senate seat for the first time in over two decades. Actor and Twitchy favorite Rob Lowe asked his followers whom they’d like to see fill that empty Senate seat.

It looks like the race might come down to a face-off between Rob Lowe and Sam Seaborn, the character he played on “The West Wing.”

Hold on; there’s a new contender who’s making some waves (even if he doesn’t know it yet).
