LOS ANGELES, Nov. 15, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Larry Thompson, veteran entertainment attorney/talent manager/film producer, announced today that he is running for California’s 32nd congressional district against Rep. Brad Sherman (D). www.LarryThompsonForCongress.com
“The polarized political positions in our nation have become dangerous in many ways,” Thompson says. “As a Moderate Republican, I want everyone to use Common Sense with Common Civility to find Common Ground to solve our Common Issues.
“With all that is going on today in this world, there is much disenchantment, disappointment, frustration, and fear with many Democrat and Republican voters. As a new Moderate Republican, I offer a fresh option to the Republican and long-standing Democratic voters.
“I have been a ‘Representative’ of Hollywood Talent for over 50 years,” said Thompson. “As either their lawyer or personal manager I have spent a career listening, caring, nurturing, planning, marketing, negotiating, and enhancing their personas and lives. I now want to be a ‘Representative’ of the people who live in our California 32nd District to do those things for them even more profoundly, give them a voice, and empower their lives.”
Why is Larry Running?
To offer a fresh beginning for the California Republican.
