Political consultant Roger Stone has apparently been trying to talk professional wrestling legend Hulk Hogan into running for U.S. Senate. Stone recently spoke to Patrick Slevin about it in an interview:
"Recently, Florida Congressman Ron DeSantis formally announced that he was running for governor of Florida. Frankly, his candidacy a few months ago was considered a long shot by politicos inside the Tallahassee beltway. That all changed when President Trump tweeted his endorsement of Congressman DeSantis for governor of Florida a few weeks ago. What’s your take on it?"
"I am somewhat surprised that President Trump has decided to endorse Ron DeSantis since DeSantis most definitely did not support the nomination of Donald Trump. I do think DeSantis has been a most effective advocate for the President in terms of blowing apart the cover-up of the egregious corruption within the Obama Justice Department and the partisan hit squad assembled by special counsel Robert Mueller. At the moment, I am more focused on persuading Hulk Hogan, whose real name is Terry Bollea, to challenge Governor Rick Scott for the U.S. Senate nomination in 2018. At a minimum, I hope to convince Hogan to body slam Scott in every debate. If the governor is under the impression that his personal responsibility for $1 billion in Medicaid fraud is no longer an issue, he’s wrong."
