Most of the recent political rumors that have circulated about potential races recently have centered around the Clintons. Shortly after Hillary’s loss to Donald Trump, it was reported that Hillary was allegedly planning a run for mayor of New York City. It could make sense, given that she received nearly 80 percent of the vote in that city, and due to the fact that current Mayor Bill de Blasio is wildly unpopular even among the liberals of NYC. Those rumors returned in early January, but were shot down by a Clinton aide who said she’d never be running for anything ever again.
There are also rumors that Chelsea Clinton is being groomed for a congressional run. We can pray those rumors are equally unsubstantiated, but in the meantime, the latest center of attention from the rumor mill is a more familiar face: Laura Ingraham.
As Breitbart reported: Conservative talk radio personality Laura Ingraham is eyeing a Senate run in Virginia to challenge Democratic Virginia Sen. Tim Kaine, the Washington Examiner reports. Sources say that several party insiders have approached her with the subject and she is considering it.
Peter Anthony, Ingraham’s business partner, has already snatched up several website domains in preparation for her Senate run, such as ingrahamsenate.net, ingrahamsenate.com, ingrahamforvirginia.com and ingraham2018.com.
Ingraham did not comment on the rumored run.
Ingraham is well-known in Virginia and inside the Washington, D.C. beltway, brings a wealth of media experience to the table. In addition to her radio show, she heads up news site Lifezette.com, is a Fox News contributor, and is a New York Times bestselling author, the Blaze reports.
Ingraham, if she chooses to mount a bid, will face a crowded primary field.
So far, Rep. Barbara Comstock (R-VA), Rep. Dave Brat (R-VA), and Carly Fiorina are all reportedly exploring runs for the Senate seat.
If Ingraham — or any Republican for that matter — is to win, it’ll be Hillary AND her running mate who find themselves kicked out of politics. Wouldn’t that be dandy?
