Chalk up Geraldo Rivera as the latest Fox News personality to enter, or considering entering, Republican politics. If he takes the leap he's "truly contemplating," he'll join the ranks of fellow Fox News alums John Kasich, Rick Santorum and Newt Gingrich. Did I leave anyone out?
The Hill reported yesterday:
“I mention this only briefly, fasten your seatbelt,” Rivera said on his radio show. “I mentioned this only briefly to my wife ... but I am and I’ve been in touch with some people in the Republican Party in New Jersey. I am truly contemplating running for Senate against Frank Lautenberg or Cory Booker.”
The Hill also reports that Rivera could face a tough primary race.
Given Jerry’s teevee credentials, you should include:
Fred Dalton Thompson
Fred “Gopher” Grandy
