Hill Harper, star of ‘The Good Doctor,’ is making a big career change by…
A Running for senate
B Going to med school
C Opening a bar
And the correct answer is: Running for senate.
Hill Harper, the actor known for his roles in TV shows such as “CSI: NY” and “The Good Doctor,” has announced his intention to run for Michigan’s open U.S. Senate seat in 2024 as a Democrat. The seat is being vacated by current U.S. Senator Debbie Stabenow, who will not be seeking re-election. Harper, who is also an author, activist, and owner of a coffee shop in Detroit, moved to the city in 2016 and has been rumored to be laying the groundwork for a run for several months.
Despite facing a strong opponent in U.S. Rep. Elissa Slotkin, Harper believes his ease in front of an audience and his progressive platform will make him a viable candidate. Harper has also emphasized his preference for a single universal health plan provided by the government and his support for efforts to forgive up to $20,000 in federal debt owed on student loans.
