Capitol Alert

The latest on California politics and government

PolitiChicks, a conservative website for women, has named Assemblyman Tim Donnelly, R-Twin Peaks, as one of the "hottest conservative supermen in America."

"I thought they must have gotten the wrong guy," Donnelly said Wednesday in a telephone interview. "I told my wife I have to work out and live up to the image."

PolitiChicks gathered a six-woman panel and used five criteria -- intelligence, courage, passion, sense of humor and looks -- when selecting Donnelly as seventh on its list of hottest conservatives in politics. U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, led that category.

Other categories included hottest conservative in new media, on TV and on the radio, which were led by political commentator David Spady of Breitbart, Greg Gutfeld of Fox News and Rush Limbaugh, who needs no introducing.

The overall hottest conservative title went to AlfonZo Rachel of the web show Zo Nation. Donnelly received honorable mention in the overall category.

The list was created in response to "hot conservative women" lists, to which PolitiChicks said "turnabout's fair play."

"A bunch of my buddies gave me grief," said Donnelly, who has launched a campaign for California governor.

"I certainly was honored to be picked in such company as Sen. Jim DeMint and others," he added, referring to the former Republican senator from South Carolina.
