Fox News anchor Eric Bolling admitted recently that he’s thinking of running for office once his television career ends, Politico reports.
Bolling said in an interview with NJ.com that “when the lights go down on my TV career, the next step is running for Senate,” though he didn’t specify which seat or state.
“A lot of Republicans run as conservatives only to be elected, and we find out they’re not conservative at all,” he said.
Bolling considers himself not only a conservative, but “right wing” and a staunch supporter of President Donald Trump.
“They’re really right wing, hard-core conservative commentaries and I think this is what my brand personally is all about, but this is an opportunity to get that voice out there stronger,” Bolling added.
He recently wrote a book titled “The Swamp: Washington’s Murky Pool of Corruption and Cronyism and How Trump Can Drain It.”
“It’s a strong, common-sense conservative voice that I think we need to continue going forward. I think it’s important for Republicans and conservatives to have a strong right wing conservative common sense voice highlighted and [Fox is] giving me that opportunity, to their credit, and I’m thankful for that.”
