There aren't a lot of Hollywood conservatives in politics, but we might be getting one more.
According to The Palm Beach Post
, Nick Loeb -- the boyfriend of "Modern Family" actress Sofia Vergara -- might make a bid in 2012 for the U.S. Senate seat held by Democrat Bill Nelson. A Republican, Loeb said he won't emulate Jeff Greene, a billionaire Palm Beach resident who spent more than $23 million of his own money on an unsuccessful run last year.
According to the Post, "Loeb said he hasn't set a timetable for making a decision" and that Vergara's career will be a consideration.
"I'm not ready to overwhelm her with this," Loeb told the newspaper. "I want to make sure I do what's right for both of us."
Loeb, the son of former Ambassador John Loeb Jr.
, is a conservative. He made a previous run for local office -- unsuccessfully.
