FANTASTIC! Rep. Matt Gaetz Considering Run for Senate in Alabama Against Democrat Doug Jones

Staunch Trump supporter Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) has told GOP colleagues he is considering moving across the state line to run for the Senate in Alabama in 2020.

Gaetz is also a grassroots favorite and supported Senator Rick Scott and Governor Ron DeSantis when Democrat Brenda Snipes was trying to steal the elections in November after the votes were counted.

Gaetz would be a FANTASTIC conservative senator from the great state of Alabama!


The Hill reported:

The rumor had been bouncing around the Capitol for weeks but took a more serious turn in recent days when Gaetz began privately discussing the idea with fellow lawmakers.

“He’s talking about running for Senate in Alabama. They have a one-day residency requirement there,” said a GOP lawmaker who knows Gaetz well. “POTUS [President of the United States] would probably endorse him.”

Sources close to Gaetz, 36, said that “people in Trump’s orbit” are personally encouraging the sophomore congressman to run for the Senate seat now held by freshman Sen. Doug Jones (D-Ala.). Those Trump allies are pointing to Alabama’s liberal requirement that people can run for the Senate so long as they are 30 years old and have been a resident for a minimum of one day.
