Modern Family star Sofia Vergara may be on her way to becoming a politician’s girlfriend, as her boyfriend, Nick Loeb, is thinking about running for a Republican U.S. Senate seat in Florida.
Earlier in the year, Loeb seemed as if he was going to enter the Senate race before eventually dropping out. Now that Mike Haridopolos has quit, however, Loeb is looking “more closely” at running next year, The Palm Beach Post writes.
He explained, “Now that Mike Haridopolos has dropped out of the race I’m sure there’s going to be other people who are interested in running. I probably won’t be making a decision until sometime after Labor Day. I would say more toward the end of September.”
Entertainment Weekly reports that Loeb concluded, “The Emmys are Sept. 18 and I’ll probably make a decision after that. Right now I’m supporting Sofia and her career.”
Loeb, a banking heir and environmental consultant, has been dating Vergara for a year.
