“The Bachelor” 2016 star Ben Higgins is seriously considering a seat in the House of Representatives even if it may affect his relationship with Lauren Bushnell.
Although the reality star has made it clear that he has not made a final decision about the matter, all signs pointed otherwise.
According to Buddy TV, Higgins has already launched a website for his supporters in Colorado and he thanked them for their support. “Thank you for your support as Ben explores his opportunities to make a positive impact on his local community!” the site stated.
The Colorado Statesman earlier reported that the 28-year-old software consultant is considering running under the Republican ticket for a set in House District 4. Although the Republicans have already nominated Willie Pinkston to run against current House Speaker Dan Pabon, Pinkston said he will give way to Higgins’ nomination if the reality star decided to run. Pabon was arrested for suspicion of DUI on St. Patrick’s Day.
In an earlier statement, Higgins said: “Whatever lies ahead, love, grace, and hope are ideals that guide my life. I will take them with me into my next adventure. Lauren and I aren’t sure yet what that will be, but in terms of representing House District 4, Willie Pinkston is an amazing person and any decision I make regarding entering the race will be based on what is best for Willie, his family and for Lauren and me.”
“My priority is giving back to my community and serving my neighbors,” Ben Higgins added. So how his wedding plans with Bushnell?
There were earlier reports that the couple has split because of “The Bachelor” runner-up and now “The Bachelorette” 2016 star JoJo Fletcher. It seems that Fletcher is not the one occupying Ben Higgins’ mind right now, rather it is politics. Is his priority of “giving back to the community” will derail his wedding plans with Bushnell?
It doesn’t seem though that it is going to that direction. Bushnell recently shared a brief Snapchat showing the cover of the wedding planning book created by fellow “Bachelor Nation” star Desiree Hartsock Siegfried, Inquisitr wrote.
There have been rumors that the couple is planning to tie the knot this summer and it will be aired live on TV. However, no details of the wedding have yet been released.
