Stacey Dash has  failed in her congressional run. Last night, she announced she’s dropping out of the race… as if she really ever had a chance.

Just weeks after she revealed her aspirations to become a U.S. congresswoman, the actress has changed her mind, which means she realized no one would vote for her. “After much prayer, introspection and discussions with my family, I am withdrawing my candidacy for California’s 44th Congressional District,” Stacey said in an email to CNN.

The former Fox News commentator explained that she began her congressional bid with the best of intentions. “I started this run with the intention to address the pressing issues in the district where I live. I hoped, and remain hopeful, that I can assist people living here on the national level. My goal was, and remains, to improve the lives of people who have been forgotten for decades by the Democratic Party.” Stacey also that she’s choosing to end her campaign focus on her family.

Was Stacey really be that delusional to think she had a chance at winning? Probably not. Compton, Watts, San Pedro and North Long Beach make up the 44th Congressional District, which is mainly Black and Latin. Out of the total population (723,685), 511,063 identify as Hispanic, while 110,038 identify as Black, the U.S. Census reports. But Dash doesn’t care about winning or losing, this was a paycheck and more fame for her, as Trevor Noah explained.
