#Schwarzenegger’s U.S. Senate bid falls flat

He failed as governor, he failed as a television host, and it appears now he’s failed in his bid to oust Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein.

A Politico story last week cited clueless Republican insiders giddy about the prospect of former “Terminator” action hero-turned-politician running for the U.S. Senate in 2018. Feinstein, who would be up for re-election, would be 85 years old.

Dan Schnur, professor at USC’s Annenberg School for Communications, said he was not surprised Schwarzenegger is not throwing his hat in the ring for the Senate seat.

“This looks more like a rumor started by Republicans worried about their lack of a Senate candidate than anything that Schwarzenegger himself took all that seriously,” Schnur said.

Schwarzenegger has been hosting the reality TV show after Trump left his position as host to pursue his presidential bid.

Schwarzenegger announced earlier this month that he’s leaving the embattled NBC series after one season.

    The Repubs wouldn’t know how to run a candidate for the senate if it bit them. They have doomed us all with their incompetence.
