Salahi previously ran in the Virginia gubernatorial election in 2013,
staging a write-in campaign after he failed to win the Republican
candidacy and missed the filing deadline to run as an independent.
Salahi shot to infamy in 2009 when he and his then-wife Michaele
Salahi crashed a White House state dinner for which they didn't have an
invitation while filming the Bravo TV show "The Real Housewives of D.C."
The couple even posted photos on their Facebook page of them posing
with the likes of Vice President Joe Biden and former Chief of Staff
