Former Trump Adviser Wants Hulk Hogan to Run for U.S. Senate in Florida

Roger Stone was one of the first prominent Republican strategists to throw his support behind Donald Trump’s presidential run, at least until Trump ended their official relationship in August 2015 by saying his campaign adviser “no longer serves a useful function” and criticizing him as a “publicity seeker.”

Fast forward a couple of years, and Stone still is backing candidates who have extremely limited political experience.

Responding to a question from GOP consultant Patrick Slevin about U.S. Rep. Ron DeSantis’s plan to run for governor of Florida, Stone pivoted to talk about the state’s U.S. Senate race, where Democratic incumbent Bill Nelson is up for reelection this year. Rick Scott, Florida’s current governor who cannot run for that office again because of the state’s term-limit rules, is thought to be considering a run at Nelson’s seat, but Stone is hoping Scott loses in the primary … to noted statesman Hulk Hogan.

In case people were worried that the Democrats had a monopoly on pushing terrible candidates for political office here comes Roger Stone to push what might possibly be the worst name thrown out yet. Hulk Hogan. Incumbent Senator Bill Nelson is up for re-election this year and everyone is expecting current Governor Rick Scott to challenge for the seat. Everyone except Stone it appears who wants Hogan to challenge Scott for the Republican nomination.

For those unfamiliar with Stone he has long history of being a political fixer/strategist/adviser for the Republican party dating back to Watergate. In more recent news he was one of the first people to back Trump in his run for President and served as a campaign adviser for most of 2015. Apparently disagreements arose and Stone left/was fired from the campaign. Despite this Stone continued to support Trump's run for President and formed a group that threatened "Days of Rage" if Trump was not given the Republican nomination. Stone apparently had such an influence on Trump's campaign that Ted Cruz accused him of being the puppet master behind the whole thing. He is also currently under investigation in regards to the whole Russian collusion thing.

I assume most here know Hulk Hogan, but I'll give a brief primer. Hogan rose to fame in the 80s as the face of the WWF. He pretty much became a cultural phenomenon and is pretty much the first wrestler to transition to Hollywood. His political experience includes an angle when he was working for WCW where he was "running" for President. His claim to fame in recent years is suing Gawker out of existence after they published a sex tape of him during which he complains about his daughter dating and sleeping with "n****rs."

I'm sure many will just blow this off as a single Republican, albeit an influential one, backing a ridiculous candidate and that he doesn't speak for the party as a whole. But let's not forget that many said the same thing when Stone originally backed Trump to run for President. So I don't think it's out of the question that a Hulk Hogan campaign could gain some serious legs if he chooses to run. Of course if he does run and he manages to win the nomination it certainly won't paint the Republican party in a pretty light considering the remarks Hogan made in the leaked tape.

Jesse Ventura did it. Arnold Swarzeneggar. Who else? If it happens, I'm not surprised. Just don't vote for them.

In Idiocracy, it was intentional most parts of it reflected on modern reality, not on a distant one--like the influence of corporations, the popularity of soft drinks, entertainment addiction and the obesity crisis.

Most stories arne't about the future they're about the current world.

Exactly....

If the Hulkster can get the corporate backing and the money that comes with it, the office is his.

We can make him TV spots and campaign material to make him look like the 2nd coming if he wants. We can herd the steeple any direction he pleases!!! believe me!!

It's all about the money and capitalism. MAGA, maga!!

hogan actually lives in florida, unlike hilllary who took over for new york.

if hogan is a us citizen, lives in florida, gets the signatures, then he can run.

the media 'tells' people its not cool to run for office. any us citizen who qualifies can run for office. its awesome actually.

the disney tv show hero davy crockett was just a super hero frontiersman, and he was in office. his legend lives on to this day, i doubt anyone asked about his iq.

the media will frown and condemn any outsider from running. me, i love it. i want all these old guys out of office for good.

until we take away the power of the inter-nationalists ruling the world, these elections do not matter too much anyways.

Oh wow, if only Florida native Randy "Macho Man" Savage was still alive... the Dems could throw him in against Hogan and the debates would be EPIC.
"Oooh Yeah, Taxes!!! Pay your taxes, Hogan!"
"Let me tell you somethin', Brother... you keep talking that smack about taxes and I'm gonna wrap my 24" pythons around the budget and squeeze some life right out of the pork spending."

Terry Gene Bollea aka the hulk is 64 and a member of my union, an indipendant that supported Obama and Romney.

and the media will adopt anyone that has the price of admission. Terry Gene has the money or can get it, believe me.

Truer words....have never been uttered, that lady belongs in the funny pages especially with those diminutive cowboy hats 3 sizes too small for her head.

Or is that Shiela Jackson Lee? Hard to keep track of all the loons in DC
