Television personality Geraldo Rivera is considering running for a Senate seat in New Jersey, reports TheHill.com.

"I mentioned this only briefly to my wife … but I am and I’ve been in touch with some people in the Republican Party in New Jersey. I am truly contemplating running for Senate against Frank Lautenberg or Cory Booker," Rivera said on his radio show, the piece notes.

He added, “I’m not going to drill this out, because obviously I’ve got commitments to Fox and to here at the radio program and I’m really having a great time."

No official Republican contenders have emerged yet, the report notes. "Rivera could face a tough primary challenge, however, with reports suggesting that Assembly Minority Leader Jon Bramnick of Westfield, state Sen. Joe Kyrillos of Monmouth County and Lt. Gov. Kim Guadagno are all weighing bids for the GOP ticket," the story adds.

It’s been four decades since New Jersey elected a Republican senator, the piece notes.

  1. Politics in New Jersey is already a joke. We don’t need a TV hack like Geraldo running for a precious Senate seat. Isn’t one TV jerk in the Senate like Al Franken enough? I’m a conservative, but I’ll gladly support Corey Booker over the moustached big mouth.
