Will wonders never cease?! Hank Williams Jr. says he will run for the U.S. Senate as a Republican candidate during the next primary election. It is my understanding that Hank has already talked with Sen. Lamar Alexander and former Sen. Bill Frist -- both Republicans -- regarding his candidacy.
Those of you who keep up with country music news by reading this weekly column are already aware that Hank spent a lot of time on the campaign trail with Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, John McCain's vice presidential running mate.
I have not seen this posted yet but I am LIVID.
“Pending some unforeseen circumstances,” U.S. Sen. Jim DeMint told the Columbia Rotary Club Monday he will not run for re-election in 2016.
“If you see the finish line, you can give it all you’ve got,” DeMint said. “There are very few people who have been (in Congress) over 10 years who are still fighting for something. That’s what Americans want us to do, right now, is to fight for the right thing — even if we lose.”
DeMint added he will not run for president, either, quipping, "I think I'm the only senator who does not see a president when I look in the mirror."
It is unlawful these days to take photos of the pretty little Senate Chambers and House Chambers!
