The former California governor’s possible 2018 U.S. Senate run is gaining buzz in Washington, according to political insiders.
Arnold Schwarzenegger might be thinking about returning to office, according to a new report.
Politico reports that the former California governor’s possible 2018 U.S. Senate run is gaining buzz in Washington. A Schwarzenegger spokesman, Daniel Ketchell, responded to the rumors, telling Politico, “Right now Gov. Schwarzenegger’s focus is on using his platform to bring some sensibility and coherency to Washington by fighting for redistricting reform, like we did in California. We are keeping all of our options open as far as how we can accomplish that.”
According to Politico, the former California governor, who ran and won as a Republican, is considering running as an independent, and his political views differ widely from that of current Republican President Donald Trump.
