A former porn star is throwing her hat in the ring for California Gov. Gavin Newsom’s job.

Mary Carey announced this week she’s running for California governor, as the former adult actress joins a crowded field of candidates looking to replace Newsom, a Democrat, in the event the recall effort triggers a special election this year, according to reports this week. 

The star of films like “Dirty Angels: Welcome to Lust Angeles,” previously ran in 2003, when California Republicans successfully helped to recall Democratic Gov. Gray Davis.

Voters ended up replaced him with Republican Arnold Schwarzenegger and Carey — who was 23 at the time — admitted she ran as a publicity stunt. She placed 10th out of a field of more than 130 candidates.

“Last time, I was young, dumb, and full of fun,” Carey, now 40, said in an interview this week, according to San Francisco’s KGO-TV. “And this time I’m more experienced and I am not going to take this position laying down. I am ready to be on top.”

Years later, Carey already has a website, where merchandise — t-shirts, tote bags, aprons, and stickers — related to the governor bid are available to purchase.

“I’m getting ready to take another shot at the California Gubernatorial Seat!! Political Strategy is in the works… Any and all support to fight the big political parties will help save our state!” Carey says on her website. “Finally a politician you want to be screwed by!!!”

As previously reported, reality TV star and a former Olympic athlete, Caitlyn Jenner, 71, is also thinking about making a run to unseat Newsom.
