Sean Hannity, the hard hitting host of the Hannity Show on Fox News may be making the leap from pundit to politician.
Earlier in the week he vowed that he would leave New York because of the comments that Governor Andrew Cuomo made regarding anyone who was pro-life, pro-Second Amendment, and anti-gay, calling them ‘extreme’ conservatives and telling them they’re not welcome in NY. Well now it looks like he’s going to try to change the nation in a different manner, as an elected representative.
Tuesday evening during his segment “Ask Sean”, one of the viewers sent a Facebook message and asked him if he would run for office. After some small talk with his guest about why he’s leaving the “United Socialist State of New York”, high taxes being another cause, he replied “would you vote for me?” with a smile on his face, that’s when he said he’d run, but not in New York.
He made it very clear that there’s no definite time frame for him to vacate the Empire State, saying he employs many people and has contractual obligations, but went on to say that he’s considering Texas or Florida for his next home and would consider running for office in one of those states.
Hannity isn’t a stranger to the House floor either, when famous conservative journalist Andrew Brietbart died Hannity delivered the eulogy to Congress, and he’s scheduled to attend the State of the Union Address as a guest of Representative Louie Gohmert (R-TX).
Hannity’s show runs weeknights from 10:00 PM until 11:00 PM EST.
