The thorn in Trump’s side may be plotting a move to Washington…
Perhaps best known at the moment as one of President Trump’s chief Twitter tormentors, former California governor and fill-in “Celebrity Apprentice” host Arnold Schwarzenegger is reportedly mulling a run for Senate. And that antagonistic Twitter persona has something to do with it:
The prospect of Schwarzenegger’s return to elected politics in a 2018 U.S. Senate run — possibly as an independent — is generating increasing buzz in state Republican circles, fueled by the former governor’s seeming ability to get under the skin of President Donald Trump on social media.
Schwarzenegger, 69, would be challenging Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), 83, who would be running for her fifth full term.
Despite the “R” behind his name, it’s the former “Terminator” star’s criticism of Trump that may give him his opening among California’s largely liberal electorate.
A spokesman for Schwarzenegger said the former governor is “keeping all…options open.”
“Right now Gov. Schwarzenegger’s focus is on using his platform to bring some sensibility and coherency to Washington by fighting for redistricting reform, like we did in California,’’ the spokesman said.
