Report: Eric Bolling Considering 2020 Run Against Senator Lindsay Graham
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.
