Jon Hollis: Meet The Republican Star Who Will Unseat Rep. Adam Schiff In November

(----------------------- Advertisement -----------------------)


Jon Hollis, 30, says he switched races because he was fired from his Hollywood job after “coming out as conservative.”

WASHINGTON — One of the Republicans vying to unseat freshman Dallas Rep. Colin Allred started out running last year in California, challenging one of the starring players in the impeachment saga, Rep. Adam Schiff.

Jon Hollis, 30, is not registered to vote anywhere in Texas, according to the Dallas County Elections Department.

Hollis filed to run for the seat on Nov. 10, and he says he’s been living in Uptown since moving to Texas several months ago.

With Schiff chairing the House impeachment hearings, Republicans around the country showered the first-time candidate with donations. Hollis collected $80,000 in his bid to oust Schiff, in a Democratic stronghold district that includes the Hollywood Bowl, major Hollywood studios and Grauman’s Chinese Theater.

He was working in the TV industry when he jumped into the race against Schiff.

Then, Hollis says, he lost his job. He blames liberals in Hollywood. He’s a Teamster who worked as an assistant location manager for Fox for just over two years, ending last September, according to his LinkedIn profile.

On social media and his campaign website, Hollis says he was fired by text message after “coming out as a conservative and voicing my support for the President.”

Fox Broadcasting Co. did not respond to requests for comment.

Hollis said he has no plans to return money donated to him when he was campaigning in California, saying his supporters have stood by him since the firing.

“I sat down and explained what happened and they frankly were extremely upset,” he said of his firing.

“Due to our success campaigning in LA, my team didn’t want me to just throw in the towel, and instead asked me to transition to Dallas to go after a seat that was flipped blue in 2018 for the first time in 25 years,” Hollis wrote on his Instagram.

Allred unseated longtime GOP veteran Pete Sessions, a member of the House Republican leadership.

In California, Hollis centered his campaign around impeachment, calling Schiff “one of the greatest threats to our country.”

He filed a complaint with the Office of Congressional Ethics against Schiff last August, accusing Schiff of violating federal election law in 2017 during a prank call from Russian comedians by expressing interest in compromising photos of Trump. The nonpartisan office has not announced any investigation.

Hollis has continued a focus on impeachment since shifting his sights. He called Allred a “puppet” of the Democratic Party and has hammered him for supporting Trump’s impeachment.
