The Nanny State?

Fran Drescher for Congress!

The star of “The Nanny” wouldn’t mind playing the title role in “The Representative” someday – but right now she’s too busy telling women about the importance of early cancer detection.

Fran Drescher yesterday admitted she’s interested in running for elected office, though she won’t be announcing a 2008 congressional run tomorrow during a cancer survivors celebration in Lake Success.

“I do see myself getting involved in politics in that way down the road, becoming an elected official, but right now the big thing I’m climbing is the ‘Cancer Schmancer Movement,'” the Queens-born star told the Daily News.


But her appearance in front of a positive audience on Long Island fueled speculation she might also announce a run against Republican Rep. Peter King.

“If she’s going in 2008 and she’s going after King’s seat, you do it at an event in King’s district,” said Baruch College Prof. Doug Muzzio, a political expert. “You declare war on enemy turf.”

Drescher denied the possibility of such an announcement, even if she has thought about having a career in Washington down the line.

“If I had my druthers, I’d rather be a senator” than a representative, she said. “But that doesn’t mean that’s necessarily where I’d start.”

Run, Fran, Run!

What can I say, I’ve had a great big crush on Fran Drescher ever since Spinal Tap.
