State Senate candidate Steve Hill wants voters to know one thing: this is not a joke.

The comedian and former U.S. Marine is running to replace Republican Sharon Runner in California’s 21st District – which includes Santa Clarita, Lancaster, Apple Valley and Victorville – after Runner announced she would not be running for reelection.

Hill, a Democrat who spent 10 years working in the California Department of Corrections as a prison guard following his time in the Marine Corps, is also an avowed atheist and organizer for the Satanic Temple.

While there is no mention of any affiliation with the Temple on his official campaign website, there are several mentions of Hill’s campaign on the Los Angeles Satanic Temple’s Facebook and Twitter pages, including one post describing the candidate as “The Satanic Temple’s own Steve Hill”.
