From the White House, to the Governor's mansion – this time, legally.
Infamous White House party crasher and reality TV star Tareq Salahi is running for governor in his home state of Virginia. But is anyone buying it?
Salahi talks about his bid for office, and Christine asks him whether his reality show antics and difficulties with his wife will affect his candidacy.
"I have passion for Virginia," Salahi says. "I've been living there my whole life. I'm excited about this. You know, currently, the Virginia attorney general has been making personal attacks against me and I said enough is enough."
Salahi is going through a very public divorce as well, filing a $50 million case against his wife Michaele and agencies he says owes him a significant amount of money. All this baggage won't deter Salahi from seeking office.
"I have a number of political things that I've been doing in Virginia for the last 15 years," he says. "People who know me prior to my wife know how serious and how much I love Virginia and how much I've been involved in Virginia community and Virginia politics. So those who knew me before I got married and before we did Hollywood things and television and TV shows and reality TV, know how serious I am."
