"Melrose Place" actor Antonio Sabato Jr. says his beliefs and fears for the future prompted him to speak out in support of Donald Trump at the 2016 Republican National Convention, according to CNN.
Now, Sabato is also tackling his latest audition, running for Congress in California. According to the Los Angeles Times, the 45-year-old General Hospital and Melrose Place star will challenge Democratic Rep. Julia Brownley in California’s 26th Congressional district, which encompasses a large portion of Ventura County and part of the central coast.
Being an immigrant himself, Sabato's words carried even more weight when he said "having secure borders, protecting our citizens, none of this is hateful. This is the responsibility of the government. And it’s the right thing to do.”
After his speech, Sabato opened up about his struggle in Hollywood for speaking about faith and Donald Trump.
“The reality is if you’re associated with the Republican Party, the casting directors and producers already blacklist you based on that,” he said.
