A day after revealing that he may run for U.S. Senate as a Republican in New Jersey next year, television personality Geraldo Rivera on Friday visited the friendly confines of Fox & Friends to discuss his potential candidacy.
After sizing up the race — which could feature a Democratic primary between incumbent Sen. Frank Lautenberg (D-NJ) and Newark, N.J. Mayor Cory Booker — Rivera said he could provide a "point of view that is unrepresented in states like New Jersey."
The Fox News regular said he would represent a socially moderate wing of the GOP, noting his support for immigration reform, gay rights and Roe v. Wade.
"So, you have to take my fiscal positions on being a Republican who believes that we have to bail out future generations rather than indebt future generations with some of these social policies that aren't in sync with much of traditional GOP politics at least not in recent years," Rivera said.
