Actress and Twitchy regular Stacey Dash announced a few moments ago that she’s withdrawing her candidacy for California’s 44th Congressional District:

It was always a long shot and the district went to Clinton in 2016 by about 70%. From CNN:

The district, which includes Compton, Watts, San Pedro and North Long Beach, has long been represented by a Democrat.

It overwhelmingly voted for Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton in 2016, 83%-12%.
Dash, who wrote a memoir called “There Goes My Social Life: From Clueless to Conservative,” has been a polarizing figure since she made the transition from beloved 1990s actor to conservative pundit. She is known for taking controversial stances on issues affecting people of color.
