George Lopez - George Lopez Turns Serious About L.a. Mayor Bid

Comedian George Lopez is refusing to rule out running for Mayor of Los Angeles in 2018, despite previously dismissing his political declaration as a joke.
Last year (10), the Valentine's Day star and TV host revealed his political ambitions, insisting he's eyeing the mayor's chair in his native L.A.
He subsequently backtracked, insisting the comments were merely made in jest, but now Lopez has once again declared his intentions for office - and this time he's serious.
In an interview with Cnn's Piers Morgan, he says, "(Maybe) in eight years. This is a great city, and it's my city. I believe that there are certain things that could be taken care of that you don't need a strong political background in.
"Architecture downtown is beautiful and people live here, but they don't have a pride in Los Angeles that they did years ago, when I was growing up."
