Laura Ingraham has been bringing her no holds barred commentary style to American politics for decades, and was one of the first conservative radio hosts to jump all aboard the Trump Train. Now, the conservative lawyer turned media icon might be considering a run for Senate.
According to multiple reports, Ingraham might be close to making a decision. She’s been fairly upfront about it:
Conservative radio host Laura Ingraham on Tuesday said she is considering mounting a challenge to Sen. Tim Kaine (D-Va.) in 2018.
“I’m considering,” Ingraham told “Fox and Friends,” adding: “I haven’t made any decisions, but a number of folks in Virginia who are well connected are very interested in my running, and that’s very flattering.”
Reports emerged over the weekend that Ingraham, host of the syndicated radio show “The Laura Ingraham Show,” was considering a run for Kaine’s seat.She said “Fox and Friends” would be the first to know once she makes her decision.“It’s always good to mix things up, and I’ve been in Washington a long time and I have a great respect for the Congress and institutions of government,” she said.
Ingraham will likely face stiff competition for the seat. Also rumored to be interested: Congressman Dave Brat, Carly Fiorina, and former RINO congressman Eric Cantor.
