Report: Eric Bolling Considering 2020 Run Against Senator Lindsay Graham

Published

on

According to a Tuesday report, a former Fox News host is considering challenging vulnerable RINO Sen. Lindsay Graham (R-SC) in 2020.

“Former Fox News host Eric Bolling is reportedly mulling a challenge to uber-liberal U.S. senator Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, multiple sources familiar with his thinking tell this news outlet,” according to the report.

The report first appeared on Fitsnews, a South Carolina political blog run by Will Folks. Folks was the original spokesman for Rep. Mark Sanford (R-SC) when Sanford was the Governor of the Palmetto State from 2003 to 2011.

“If Bolling decides to challenge Graham, he is likely to have plenty of company.  Greenville, S.C. businessman John Warren – who nearly knocked off “Republican” governor Henry McMaster of South Carolina in this year’s GOP gubernatorial runoff – is also said to be keenly interested in running against Graham, who is seeking his fourth six-year term in 2020,” the report said.

Bolling is a personal friend of President Donald J. Trump has been a faithful supporter since the beginning of the campaign. He predicted that Trump will win reelection in 2020 at a Sunday rally at Patriots Point in Mt. Pleasant, SC, sponsored by the group Red Hats for Trump.

“He’s going to win in 2020. I don’t know what will happen to the Republican Party when he leaves office,” Bolling reportedly said.

Bolling has also endorsed pro-Trump candidate Katie Arrington, running in South Carolina’s 1st Congressional District.

The former minor league baseball player and successful commodities trader recently moved to South Carolina. He currently hosts a show on CRTV which bolsters such conservative figures as Mark Levin and Michelle Malkin, and is quickly becoming an alternative to Fox News which has taken a non-committal, centrist view on the Trump presidency in order to keep its pro-amnesty advertisers at the Chamber of Commerce.

“All I want to do is shed a light on the Swamp and expose the truth,” Bolling said at the event.

DESPERATION: Never Trumpers Float Romney/Bloomberg as ‘the Unity Ticket America Deserves’

How pathetic are these guys?

Published

on

The “Never Trump” brain trust over at The Bulwark has unveiled their antidote to stop the President they hate so much in this year’s election: a “unity ticket” consisting of Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) as a presidential candidate and former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg as his running mate.

Author Neal Simon made the argument that this potential third-party ticket would appeal to independents in an op/ed published on Monday.

“Senator Romney’s entrance into the presidential race wouldn’t just give the vital center of the electorate a home—it would stand a chance to break a system that is stacked against independents and third party candidates,” Simon argued.

He compared Romney’s potential to that of French President Emmanuel Macron, the reviled ruler who has populist Yellow Vest protesters rioting against his unpopular style of governance every weekend.

“And as Emmanuel Macron showed in France, standing up a new party and winning a presidential election in one motion is not impossible,” Simon wrote.

Simon posited that by putting Bloomberg on his ticket as Vice President, Romney could essentially buy the election, which is what Bloomberg is basically trying to do right now with his run for the Democratic presidential nomination.

“A Romney-Bloomberg ticket would be a first in modern American politics: A bipartisan unity ticket running under the banner of an independent third party,” he wrote.

Simon’s premise is predicated off of an assumption that Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) will win the Democrat presidential nomination. He believes that populism taking over the Republican and Democrat parties would open the door for a centrist revolution that could be led by Romney and Bloomberg.

“It would give both disgruntled Republicans who feel their party has become lost in Trump’s personality cult and Democrats who feel their party is lurching too far left towards a socialist revolution a voice on the ballot that reflects a popular idea of how the country should be run,” he concluded.

Simon, who was a failed independent candidate in the state of Maryland for the U.S. Senate in 2018, recently published a book titled, “Contract to Unite America: Ten Reforms to Reclaim Our Republic.” He is using the words of George Washington in his manifesto to defeat the new age of populist politics and return to the days of old.

“Capitalizing on personal insight derived from Simon’s political campaign along with extensive research, Contract to Unite America provides specific, practical solutions for an improved government and a better tomorrow,” Simon’s book description reads.

Unfortunately for Simon and the “Bulwark” neocons, the public has had enough of status quo politicians and does not want to return to the George W. Bush era. The dream ticket of Romney/Bloomberg is not likely to come to fruition.
