REPORT: Fox News’ Eric Bolling Eyes Senate Run Against Establishment Republican
Fox News anchor, Eric Bolling announced Monday morning that he is eyeing a chance to challenge a sitting Republican Senator in the upcoming primary.
Bolling is currently the host of “The Fox News Specialists”, which was a byproduct of the O’Reilly firing. Bolling spoke to Politico over the phone stating that, “when the lights go down on the TV career” he would consider running against a Republican in a primary bid for the Senate.
In recent times, Bolling has become known for his tough-talking monologues entitled ‘Wake Up America.’
“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,” said Bolling. “A lot of Republicans run as conservatives only to be elected, and we find out they’re not conservative at all.”
Although a long time supporter of the president, Bolling remains critical of some aspects of the new administration’s agenda, including a potential border adjustment tax, health care reform, as well as his brief intervention in Syria.
“I don’t go anywhere near an import fee for products, I’m against that. I’m not in favor of getting involved in the Middle Eastern wars unless our allies or troops are getting threatened, and there are places where we’re getting involved like Syria that I don’t think we should. I don’t love the health care plan they’re putting together but I like the fact he’s using the health care savings and applying it to tax reform.”
