Former Fox News host Eric Bolling is rumored to be considering a run for Congress in South Carolina.
While it is unclear in which district Bolling, who lives in Charleston, might consider running, two possibilities include a primary challenge against Rep. Tom Rice, who voted to impeach President Donald Trump, or Rep. Nancy Mace.
“I absolutely love living in South Carolina and taking time to listen to voters (and viewers), and what I hear is total frustration with President Biden’s aggressive progressive agenda. South Carolina is conservative, and South Carolinians deserve conservative representation in D.C.”
Bolling has considered entering the political arena before, having moved to South Carolina with the possibility of taking on Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC), though he ultimately decided against it. Bolling, who used to be a Wall Street trader, worked at Fox News for 11 years until leaving the network amid sexual misconduct allegations that he has denied. He supported Trump and interviewed him several times.
Trump has expressed his intention to use primary races to derail Republicans such as Rice who did not support him. Mace, though she opposed impeachment, nevertheless cooled toward the former president in the wake of the Jan. 6 Capitol riot.
Any chance replace a RINO with a more conservative alternative like Mr. Bolling should be celebrated, as he was a well respected and liked host on the Fox News Network
