This ‘Star Trek’ icon says he’s ‘tempted’ to run against Mitch McConnell


Could “Star Trek” icon George Takei be running for office? 

The actor on Thursday tweeted that he was “tempted to move to Kentucky to just run against” Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.

According to the Constitutional Qualifications for Senator,  a candidate is only required to live in the state that they’d represent.

McConnell reportedly has not lost an election for the Senate since 1984.

“Star Wars” actor Mark Hamill threw in his support for Takei, tweeting: “I’m tempted to move to Kentucky just so I could vote for you. #DitchMitch.”
