Sandra Fluke Floats Running For Rep. Waxman's Seat

John Shearer

Fluke gained national attention in 2012 for her testimony at a House oversight hearing examining contraception coverage under Obamacare. After that testimony a number of outlandish conservative conspiracy theories about Fluke arose, including that she was a plant for the White House.

Democrats are confident that Waxman's seat will stay in under Democratic control. Waxman's district cleanly went for President Barack Obama over Mitt Romney in 2012 and Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) in 2008.
