David Hogg announced that he plans to run for political office when he turns 25, following the lead of the young socialist Democratic candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who he’s touting for president.
Left-wing activist David Hogg announced in a recent interview that he plans to run for political office when he turns 25, following the lead of the young socialist Democratic candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who he’s touted for president.
In the NYMag puff piece, writer Lisa Miller says Hogg told her that he plans to “run for Congress when he’s 25.”
“I think I’ve come to that conclusion,” Hogg said. “I want to be at least part of the change in Congress.”
Hogg said his goals are to go to college next year and “read a sh*tload of books” before working on a presidential campaign in 2020.
Hogg bashed multiple Democrats in the interview, including “old” Nancy Pelosi, “terrible on guns” Bernie Sanders, and Barack Obama — who he says “increased drone warfare and killed a lot of civilians.” More

Hogg graduated high school in May and is taking a gap year before enrolling in college. But he says he plans to go to college in 2019 and “read a s–tload of books.”
He also said he hopes to work on a presidential campaign in 2020, and claims some potential candidates have already approached him. Hogg has been a fierce critic of President Trump, and says in the magazine he hung up when the White House invited him to a listening session.
Hogg became one of the most recognizable faces after February’s school shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, when 17 people were killed.
Since the shooting, Hogg has amassed more than 800,000 followers – and his share of critics — on Twitter through frequent cable news appearances and his online anti-gun activism. More
