to the Federal Election Commission, 26-year-old Sean Eldridge, the
political activist/investor who married Facebook co-founder
mega-millionaire Chris Hughes last summer, has just filed papers in New
York to run for U.S. Congress.
Eldridge, a staunch
Democrat known in political circles for his advocacy of same-sex
marriage and public financing of political campaigns, currently heads an
investment firm in New York. He will be seeking a House seat in New
York's 19th District, represented by Chris Gibson, a two-term
Republican and former West Point professor who was reelected last
November by just a 6-point margin. But because the 19th District went
with Obama, it is one of the vulnerable districts Democratic strategists
are gunning for in 2014, in hopes to reclaim the House. Heady stuff,
