“He’ll Be Back” – Arnie Hints At Senate Run

Having 'quit' The Apprentice, it appears Arnold Schwarzenegger may be taking his first step towards making good on his tweet-threat to President Trump (on swapping jobs). As The Hill reports, the former California governor is reportedly considering running for Senate in 2018 as a third-party candidate.

Arnie had warned "Hey Donald I have a great idea. Why don’t we switch jobs? You take over TV, because you’re such an expert in ratings, and I take over your job. And then people can finally sleep comfortable again. Hmm?"

And now, Schwarzenegger's spokesman Daniel Ketchell told Politico Thursday the actor isn't ruling out a run.

"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," Ketchell said. "We are keeping all of our options open as far as how we can accomplish that."

According to the report, California political insiders are buzzing over a possible Schwarzenegger Senate run and say it's a real possibility. A former GOP political consultant, Luis Alvarado, told Politico it's good timing for Schwarzenegger to return to politics.

“In politics after Donald Trump, nothing is crazy any longer. We’re in the third dimension here,’’ he said. “Arnold Schwarzenegger, who actually has more political experience than Trump, would certainly seem to fit a mold to what some of the electorate would find attractive."

In 2018, California Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein will be 85 and up for reelection. Will it be Oprah vs Arnie vs Trump in 2020?
