Geraldo Rivera Says He is Considering a Senate Run in 2014 as a Republican?

 

Geraldo Rivera a Republican?

Fox News host Geraldo Rivera says that he is contemplating running for US Senate in New Jersey in 2014. Rivera would either be running against incumbent 89 year old  Sen. Frank Lautenberg or Newark Mayor Cory Booker. However, Geraldo is no shoe in to be the GOP candidate for US Senate as there will be other challenges from GOP candidates like include state Assembly Minority Leader Jon Bramnick of Westfield, state Sen. Joe Kyrillos of Monmouth County and Lt. Gov. Kim Guadagno. Nothing has been finalized yet. If Geraldo does run for Senate he will have to give up his day job at Fox News.

Geraldo Rivera, the host of a Fox News show, said Thursday that he is “seriously contemplating running” for the U.S. Senate in his home state of New Jersey.

Rivera would be running for the seat that Sen. Frank Lautenberg, who is 89 and a Democrat, now occupies. Lautenberg is up for reelection in 2014 and has not confirmed whether he will run again.

Rivera said he would run as a Republican.

Newark Mayor Cory Booker, a Democrat, has made it known that he is considering running for the seat.

“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.”

      Watch out NJ. This pseudo Republican is a crazy liberal socialist. Your state doesn’t need any more of these types in government.

      Food for Thought

      Geraldo Rivera eyes Senate, explains GOP views
      February 1, 2013

      In a column for Fox News Latino, Rivera said he voted for President Obama in November “because the fiscal threat posed by the Democrats seemed less immediate than the GOP’s intrusion into the private space of abortion” and the Republican Party’s “opposition to the inevitability of immigration reform and the rights of gay people to get married.”

      “Those things I believe, so how am I a Republican?” Rivera wrote. ….

      He mentioned, on Fox News one night that he grew up on Long Island.

      It appears that many of Obama’s allies on the issues have found a home in the Republican party.

      The vote was SEVENTY NINE to NINETEEN in favor of sending F-16 fighter jets to the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt. TWENTY SIX Republicans voted with the Democrats to arm the Islamic enemy.

      Reminder: The following words came out of Senator McCain’s lip when he was campaigning in 2008 under the Republican banner for President of the United States.

      McCain warns supporters, calls Obama decent man
      October 10, 2008 06:17 PM

      McCain was booed at a town-hall meeting here when he rebuked a man who said he was “scared…to bring a child up” under an Obama presidency. “I have to tell you he is a decent person and a person that you do not have to be scared of as president of the United States,” McCain said to audible disapproval.

      The man was one of nine who appealed to McCain to confront Obama more forcefully, several of them raising specific controversies dominating news, including Obama’s relationships with Bill Ayers and the group ACORN. McCain seized the microphone from the hands of a woman who called Obama “an Arab,” and scolded her. “He’s a decent family man that I happen to have disagreements with on fundamental issues,” McCain said, to scant approval.

      A prime example of what is wrong with the republican party aka democrat lite.

      Geraldo isn’t the most “Republican” of potential, but he has scored points with me for his pro-military and pro-crime victim stances. I do not believe he would retreat from his positions as reflexively as Cory Booker did after he was rebuked by the POTUS after complimenting Romney.

      Would he use his real name Tony Rivers ???

      When the central group of Government is expanding
      at the rate it is now, the surge of power felt by the
      self-serving politicians is enough to encourage destruction
      of the American Way of Life.
