The Rock in the race for US President in 2020
A campaign committee has filed an official draft on the potential 2020 presidential campaign of Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, the WWE wrestler turned filmstar. The news comes just a few months after Dwayne Johnson himself made several statements regarding a potential run to become the president of the United States (POTUS). The paperwork was filed on behalf of the actor by a West Virginian man named Kenton Tilford, the Independent reports quoting The Hill. However, the connection between the two men is, as of yet, unknown. Johnson has been flirting with the idea of getting into politics for some time, previously telling Vanity Fair he "wouldn't rule it out" when it came to him running for POTUS, saying it would be "a great opportunity to help people." Some months later, after the Washington Post ran a piece assessing his presidential chances, Johnson described the prospect as "very alluring".
He went into more detail on Instagram. He wrote: “Interesting piece from The Washington Post on if I ran for POTUS I could actually win. Writer Alyssa Rosenberg did some pretty good research into my background (slave descendants fighting for their freedom, Revolutionary War etc). Much more to uncover but well done. More and more pieces like this are popping up due to the Presidential election and they're cool/fun to read... I care DEEPLY about our country... and the idea of one day becoming President to create real positive impact and global change is very alluring. Buuuuut until that possible day, the most important thing right now is strong honest leadership from our current and future leaders of this country."

But Dwayne has in the past been a supporter of the Republican Party, speaking at the Republican National Convention back in 2000. He has also been an active campaigner in encouraging young people to vote.
