NEW YORK, July 24 (UPI) -- A 22-year-old New York woman running for the state Senate said the film "Legally Blonde" taught her to "take pink and make it sophisticated."

Mindy Meyer, who is running as a Republican and Conservative against Democratic incumbent Kevin Parker, said Rudy Giuliani is her political idol and Reese Witherspoon's character in "Legally Blonde" is her style idol for showing "you can take pink and make it sophisticated," the New York Post reported Tuesday.

Her Web site, MindyMeyer4Senate.com, features pictures of the candidate superimposed over the U.S. Capitol, instead of the state Capitol in Albany, and dressed as Katniss from "The Hunger Games" with a caption reading, "No more 'Hunger Games' in our district!"

The Web site reads "I'm a Senator and I know it" while a instrumental version of the LMFAO hit "Sexy and I Know It" plays in the background.

Meyer, who obtained a political science degree from Touro College, said she "fell asleep" looking at other political Web sites.

Parker told Web site City & State he is taking Meyer's campaign seriously.

New York Conservative Party Chairman Jerry Kassar said he is glad to have Meyer on the ticket.

"She's a law-school student, she's extremely intelligent, she is very focused on this race, and I'm excited to have a candidate who's getting all this attention!" he said.
