    Group Trying to Lure Tucker Carlson Into 2024 Presidential Race Launches Ad

    Published on

    A new advertisement will be aired by a political action committee that will attempt to entice former Fox News star Tucker Carlson to run for president in 2024.

    The attempt to drag Carlson into next year’s presidential election comes after Fox News decided to take him off the air in mid-April, leaving a major void at the network that has resulted in a significant loss of viewers, with Fox News now routinely losing out to rival networks MSNBC and CNN.

    Right-leaning Conservative viewers have flocked to Newsmax, whose roster of talent includes an increasing number of former Fox News presenters, since the departure of Tucker Carlson. The Hill reported that the Draft Tucker PAC’s new advertisement began airing on the fledgling network last week.

    The advertisement will run for one week, the report added.

    “Republicans need a new leader, and Tucker Carlson is ready to lead,” the ad says. “No one in America is more articulate and pins down leftists in both parties better than Tucker.”

    The advertisement continued by comparing Carlson to the late conservative talk radio monarch Rush Limbaugh.

    “Tucker Carlson is witty, sharp, and mocks woke nonsense,” the ad says. “Tucker will whip Biden in a debate.”

    Chris Ekstrom, a former Texas congressional candidate and Republican donor, is the PAC’s chairman and primary financial supporter, according to The Hill.

    Ekstrom disclosed that he vaguely knows Carlson and was approached about creating the PAC prior to Carlson’s termination from Fox News, according to the outlet. Nonetheless, the concept was deemed impractical so long as Carlson remained a primetime host.

    Now that this obstacle has been removed, Ekstrom considers a Carlson presidential campaign to be a realistic possibility. The Hill added that he went on to express his displeasure with both former President Donald Trump and Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, finding neither of them to be entirely satisfactory.

    “I’m very concerned that they’re going to not move the debate as far right as it ought to be,” Ekstrom told the outlet. “If Tucker Carlson entered the race in a reasonable amount of time and just continued in the same territory that he was covering at Fox, I think that’d be a rude awakening for both President Trump and Governor DeSantis.”

    The outlet reported that Charlie Kolean, the executive director of the PAC and a Republican political consultant, believes that strong voter enthusiasm for Tucker Carlson can have a significant impact on the remainder of the primary field.

    “I think it will move the conversation to the right, just in a macro way, with candidates taking more solid stances rather than being like a moderate Republican,” he told The Hill.

    Recently, Carlson’s name has been mentioned as a potential candidate for president, and the former anchor has, albeit briefly, fueled this rumor.

    Mattathias Schwartz of Insider, who conducted a text interview with Tucker Carlson earlier this week, demonstrated more than anything else that liberal writers have little to no sense of comedy regarding conservatives.

    “When I asked Tucker Carlson in a text on Tuesday evening if he was planning a run for president, the newly self-employed far-right firebrand had a shocking answer: ‘Yes. Announcing Friday in New Hampshire,’” Schwartz wrote in his article, which was published earlier this month. CONTINUE READING…
