Run the Rock 2020 Campaign Committee

Dwayne Douglas Johnson was born on May 2nd, 1972 in Hayward, California. Johnson's Father is Canadian and a Black Nova Scotian, while his Mother is of Samoan Descent

A Campaign Committee has formally Filed with the Federal Election Committee (FEC) to Draft Actor and former WWE wrestler Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson for President. “Run the Rock 2020,” the name of the Official Organization, was Filed on behalf of Johnson on Sunday, according to FEC Records.

The Paperwork was Filed by a man named Kenton Tilford, a 26-year-old Political Consultant and Freelance Writer, under a West Virginia address. Tilford's connection to Johnson and his motivation for Filing the Organization is not clear.

The Committee's overall Goal is "to build a grassroots community of Americans to show to Mr. Johnson that his incredible popularity as an actor and public figure can translate into politics seamlessly," Tilford said. "And I hope it influences him to take the plunge and run in 2020." Tilford also created a Twitter Account called "Draft the Rock" for the Committee. "A grassroots movement to send The People's Champion to the White House in 2020," the Twitter Bio reads. "#MakeAmericaRockAgain."

As stated in the FEC Form, the Committee "supports/opposes only one candidate and is NOT an Authorized Committee."

Johnson has long joked about a White House Bid. But he revealed earlier this year that his Run is “a real possibility.”

In an interview with GQ in May, he spoke about how he would take on Trump’s Policies, adding that he would like to see better Leadership, Responsibility, and “Poise” from the Oval Office.

The actor spoke at the Republican National Convention in 2000 and attended the Democratic National Convention the same year. He has said that he is Registered as an Independent.

He was born in the U.S., but also is a Citizen of Canada through his Father. To run, he will have to Revoke his Canadian Citizenship.
