Stormy Daniels Considered Senate Run Before She Was at Center of Alleged Trump Sex Scandal
Stormy Daniels went on a listening tour to see about a possible Senate run in Louisiana against then-Sen. David Vitter in 2009.
Long before Donald Trump became president, adult film star Stormy Daniels created a political storm nearly a decade ago when she considered running for office.
In 2009, Daniels was seriously considering a campaign for a senate in her native Louisiana.
"I was very interested in politics at the time, and the way things worked, and I thought I could make a difference," she told Inside Edition.
She claimed she was "sort of" a Republican, adding, “I don't know, I’m like half and half. I go both ways.”
Daniels was contemplating running against then-Sen. David Vitter, a man whose family-values image imploded when he was embroiled in an escort scandal.
“He got caught, which doesn't bother me," Daniels said. "Hey, go on with your bad self. Who am I to judge? But the fact that he was a hypocrite made me pretty crazy."
She recalled her time on the campaign trail and admitted that “I got a lot more traction than I thought it would do and the places were packed."
In the end, she decided not to run.
Now, almost a decade later, she is now at the center of a major political scandal that threatens the president.
