Ben Affleck Won’t Be Running For Senate
When John Kerry was nominated to become the next Secretary of State speculation ran wild that perhaps Ben Affleck, a tireless political activist, might run for his vacated Senate seat in Massachusetts. That speculation has come to an end.
The actor, who has been an increasingly popular presence in the political world recently, wrote on his Facebook page: “I love Massachusetts and our political process, but I am not running for office.”
He may not be running for political office but he will be in the running when the Motion Picture Academy announces its nominees for next years “Oscars”. His latest film, “Argo” may well earn him a Best Director nomination as well as one for “Best Actor”.
