THE ANGEL — Actor Ben Savage is considering another run for political office.

According to Federal Election Commission filings filed Wednesday, the former “Boy Meets World” star has run for office as a Democrat in California’s 30th congressional district.

A Savage rep told ABC News in a statement despite the filing that “he’s focused on his upcoming nuptials. Ben is still making decisions and always looking for ways to give back and serve the community.”

(Earlier this month, Savage announced he’s engaged to Tessa Angermeier.)

Savage’s rep did not respond to follow-up questions about why he had now filed campaign papers.

The 30th District seat is currently held by longtime Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff, who is considered a potential candidate to succeed Senator Dianne Feinstein, though she has not yet said whether or not she will seek reelection.

If Savage runs for Congress, it won’t be his first campaign for office. He ran unsuccessfully for West Hollywood City Council in the 2022 election, focusing on community safety, housing and homelessness, according to his website.

A spokesman for Schiff said the congressman would not address Savage’s possible bid for his seat.

California’s 30th district includes West Hollywood, Burbank and parts of Pasadena.

Savage played the lead role of Cory Matthews on ABC’s Boy Meets World from 1993 to 2000 and then reprized his role in the 2014 reboot Girl Meets World. His most recent roles were two TV movies in 2022 and 2020.

Savage has apparently long had an interest in politics, having studied political science at Stanford University, where he graduated in 2004. In 2003, he also did an internship for Pennsylvania Senator Arlen Specter, then a Republican.

The general elections will take place on November 5, 2024.
