Campaign committee forms to draft Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson for president

A campaign committee has been formally filed with the Federal Election Commission to draft actor Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson for president.

The organization, dubbed "Run the Rock 2020," was officially registered with the FEC on Sunday, according to a Statement of Organization on the FEC website.

The paperwork was filed by a man named Kenton Tilford, who registered a West Virginia address as the campaign organization's headquarters. And it appears to be the first official effort to draft the 45-year-old entertainer into the presidential fray.

Johnson, who made a name for himself as WWE wrestler "The Rock," has been the subject of many rumors alleging the "Baywatch" actor is mulling a presidential run in 2020. He has long-joked of his 2020 candidacy, playing a muscular Obama on "Saturday Night Live" while standing in front of a podium labeled "The Rock Johnson 2020."

However, he revealed earlier this year that his run for the nation's highest office is "a real possibility."

The actor, who was once registered as a Republican but now identifies as an Independent, spoke critically of Trump's policies in an interview with GQ in May, in which he said he would like to see better leadership, responsibility and "poise" from the Trump White House.

To some, Johnson seems to have become more vocal about the possibility of becoming the next U.S. president since Trump assumed office.

During an appearance on the "The Tonight Show" with Jimmy Fallon show back in May, Johnson said he was "blown away" by positive responses he received following suggestions he should run for office.

"I think it's because, you know, a lot of people want to see a different leadership today," Johnson said. "I'm sorry, not different, but better leadership today, right? A better leadership."
