This year's midterm elections could feature several people with little or no political experience -- but they do have varying degrees of celebrity. Some of the possible 2018 contenders include two Miss Americas, a star from the 1990s film "Clueless," a soap opera actor, and a former star of "Law and Order SVU."
Donald Trump's successful neophyte presidential bid -- which came after a career in real estate and reality TV -- served as a reminder that celebrity can be a big commodity in a political campaign.
Here are a few of the famous candidates considering runs in 2018:
Diane Neal, former "Law & Order: SVU" actress
Neal, 42, announced her bid last week to represent New York's 19th congressional district as an independent. She starred as Casey Novak, the assistant district attorney, in NBC's "Law and Order: SVU" for four seasons.
