Campa-Najjar aims to win a seat to represent San Diego, a district that has long been held by Republicans - and he's looking to turn the tables.
Togetherness is at the forefront of his campaign. He says that though his name may be on the ballot, the "elections aren't just about candidates."
"They’re about you and me, becoming an #unstoppablewe -- unstoppable in [the] face of adversity, greed, and corruption," the 28-year-old wrote in a Facebook announcement post.
"It's time to bring people back together ... and #togetherwewill"
When did his story go viral?
The attention all started when NBC published an article titled 'A Young Latino Arab American Throws His Hat in Congressional Ring' - detailing Campa-Najjar's campaign and his background.
His name began making the rounds online soon after.
But, it wasn't the fact that a Latino Arab was running for congress in one of the most die-hard republican states that got people talking.
His chiseled jaw and dark, dreamy eyes kinda took the cake.
Some people went a bit overboard ...
A bit TOO overboard
Campa-Najjar is of course flattered, but hopes that his ideas get the attention they deserve.
"I mean, it’s flattering," Campa-Najjar told BuzzFeed News.
"I hope people focus on my ideas and not my looks."
He's a "low-key BAE"
People want to be his secretary.
Some are blinded by his looks ... but it's a good thing his work is great!
He's inspired others in a big way
To be fair ... he is pretty handsome!
And pretty cool, too. Hanging out with James McAvoy like it's normal ...
But ... who is Campa-Najjar, really?
Campa-Najjar campaigned for Obama in 2012 for a re-election. He was a field director during the course of the campaign and looks back at those years with nostalgia and hope for the future.
"We were a unified progressive movement," he told BuzzFeed News.
"Before people were feeling the burn, before people were stronger together, we were unified and feeling fired up and ready to go," he added.
Aside from political campaigning, the 28-year-old runs a public affairs and strategic communications company called ACN strategies.
He was raised by a Palestinian-American father and a Mexican mother - which puts him at the heart of discrimination in U.S. president Donald Trump's America, whose campaign was heavily criticized for its xenophobic rhetoric.
Campa-Najjar has documented his personal experiences both online and offline over the years - and knows exactly what discrimination and hate looks like in nearly all parts of the world.
"After not being considered Arab enough in Gaza, Latino enough for the barrio, or American enough in my own country, after so many shut doors, the door to all others finally opened. On that day, in those hallowed halls, I cried," Campa-Najjar once wrote.
So here's to hope and change!
