Cooper Hefner, son of Playboy founder, announces run for California Senate

The son of the late Playboy founder Hugh Hefner is jumping into the political ring.

Cooper Hefner announced Monday that he's launching an exploratory campaign to run as a Democrat for the California Senate in the state's 30th District, which includes Los Angeles County.

The incumbent in the district, state Sen. Holly Mitchell, is running for the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors. If she wins her election this November, Gov. Gavin Newsom will call for a special election in the first quarter of 2021. If Mitchell loses, then the election cycle will move into 2022. Mitchell has held her Senate seat since 2013.


Hefner says his policy platform includes tackling the climate crisis and energy sustainability, leveraging technology to simplify government, addressing the homelessness crisis and delivering comprehensive police reform.
