Senator Geraldo Rivera? Seems Unlikely the Fox News Pundit Will Run - by Howard Kurtz
by Howard Kurtz Feb 2, 2013 4:45 AM EST
The Fox News pundit says he’s eyeing a New Jersey race, even with his professional exploits and years of excessive personal baggage. A look at why the dream will remain a fantasy.
Geraldo Rivera wants to be a United States senator. Right.
Imagine the 30-second ads against him: here he is getting his nose broken by a neo-Nazi in a brawl on his daytime talk show.
Here he is melodramatically opening Al Capone’s vault and finding … a few old bottles.
And did I mention that his memoir, filled with tales of the women he has bedded, is called Exposing Myself?
I like Geraldo, but this is delusional. And something of a stunt. He’ll milk it for a bit and then decide he wants to spend more time with his microphone.
The Fox News host let it be known on his radio show Thursday that he was seriously contemplating a run for the Senate from New Jersey in 2014. He said that in weighing a race against Cory Booker or Frank Lautenberg, he had been in touch with some Republican leaders in the state.
That's right, Geraldo, who is on his fifth wife, wants the GOP to embrace him. (Of his tryst on a Central Park boat ride with Margaret Trudeau, he writes: “The estranged first lady of Canada leant new meaning to the term head of state.”) He’s been a liberal crusader on illegal immigration. He is pro-choice on abortion. He favors gay rights and same-sex marriage. Good luck with that in a Republican primary.
