SAN JUAN - Puerto Rican wrestler José Laureano, known as "Chicky Starr", has made public his quest for a seat in the [Puerto Rico] House of Representatives.
Although he has not yet decided under what political party he will run, Laureano is clear that he wants to become the first wrestler to win a position in Puerto Rican politics.
The wrestler, who has a group of followers known as the "chickystarrian religion", recently launched his "political campaign" through the Facebook and Twitter social networks as well as several radio programs he participates in.
For the time being, the wrestler's aspirations are in the realm of speculation, since he himself has not requested the necessary documents from any of the three [registered] political parties in order to run for a legislative vacancy.
Laureano lives in Bayamón, though he is a native of Vega Baja. In addition to wrestling, he is an employee of the Capitol Security company.
