Savage, who unsuccessfully ran for a spot on the West Hollywood City Council in the 2022 election, filed a statement of organization with the FEC Wednesday, registering as a Democratic candidate for California's 30th House District, a spot currently held by Democrat Adam Schiff.
Schiff has served California in the U.S. House of Representatives since 2001 and many have suspected he will be vying for Dianne Feinstein's Senate seat in the 2024 election, though the 89-year-old Feinstein has not said what her plans are once her term is up in January 2025.

In his bid for West Hollywood City Council, Savage ran on a platform of community safety, strengthening the local economy and housing the homeless. In addition to Savage and Schiff, five others have filed to run for the spot in 2024, four Democrat candidates and one Republican candidate.
Savage rose to fame playing Cory Matthews on the hit show "Boy Meets World," from 1993 to 2000, then reprise the role in the spinoff "Girl Meets World" from 2014-2017. He's the brother of "The Wonder Years" actor Fred Savage.
