MSNBC’s resident conservative host Joe Scarborough on Friday floated his latest thoughts on running for public office, this time for a Senate seat in his homes state of Florida.
“I’ve already said at some point, I want to get back into service,
public service, and hopefully I can do it while a Republican’s at the
White House,” Scarborough told rightwing talk radio host Hugh Hewitt.
Scarborough said he had is eye on Sen. Bill Nelson’s (D-FL) seat, and expressed interest in challenging Nelson in 2018 when the senator runs for reelection.
The interview with Hewitt came about a year after he told the conservative host that he may run for President in 2016, an idea that few took seriously and which eventually fizzled out.
Scarborough served as a congressman for Florida’s 1st district in the House of Representative from 1995 until 2001, at which point he abruptly resigned.
