Laura Ingraham was one of Donald Trump’s earliest, most consistent supporters. Perhaps he inspired her. The longtime talk radio star and Fox News personality is considering running for Senate in Virginia:
Knowledgeable sources said that several party insiders have approached the media giant to run and that she is considering it.
In preparation for a bid, her business partner, Peter Anthony, has begun buying website domains for Ingraham to use should she decide to move forward. It includes: ingrahamsenate.net, ingrahamsenate.com, ingrahamforvirginia.com and ingraham2018.com.
Ingraham wouldn’t comment on any run.
While it would be considered an uphill fight, Ingraham brings her well-known personality and several influential backers to a race that could translate into immediate media and fundraising opportunities.
Add Ingraham’s name to a list of possible candidates for Virginia Senate that includes GOP Reps Dave Brat and Barbara Comstock, and former Hewlett Packard CEO Carly Fiorina.
