David Hogg—the outspoken survivor of the school shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, earlier this year—apparently has his eyes set on Congress in the future.
Hogg, 18, told New York magazine he plans to run for Congress as soon as he is eligible once he turns 25.
“I think I’ve come to that conclusion,” he told the magazine. “I want to be at least part of the change in Congress.”
The idea of running for Congress could be a logical next step for Hogg, who despite being at the center of numerous conspiracy theories (and threats of violence) following the school shooting, has become a vocal activist and supporter of gun reform.
Since the shooting, where 17 people were killed, the Parkland graduate has become one of the most recognizable figures to advocate for gun reform. He has previously said he plans to take a “gap year” this year to work on the 2018 midterms and educate voters.
He told the magazine he plans on going to college in 2019, taking time off in 2020 to work on a presidential campaign, and after college work toward making a run for Congress.
As for what kind of platform Hogg may run on, his prediction as to who will be leading the country in the future may hold some answers.
