Will Colombian Modern Family star Sofia Vergara become a political figure soon? Her boyfriend, Nick Loeb, is holding a press conference today to publicly announce his decision about whether or not he’ll be running for a seat in the United States Senate.
39 year-old, Emmy-nominated Vergara has supported 36 year-old Miami businessman Loeb through his political aspirations and in a serious car accident he endured last year during the same week as the Emmy Awards. He told the Miami Herald, “Sofia was wonderful. She took care of me.”
There is potential for the Republican to actually be voted into office. He ran for Florida state Senate back in 2009, but had to drop out in order to finalize a divorce. If Loeb wins, Vergara would be something of a Latina political right-hand lady.
Loeb, grandson of one of the Lehman Brothers, will make his announcement at 2 p.m. on the day before Vergara’s new movie Happy Feet Two is released.
