Tim Tebow, Florida congressman?
It hasn’t happened yet, but that could be a reality if certain Republican strategists get their wish, sources told the Washington Examiner‘s Paul Bedard. Rep. Ander Crenshaw, a 71-year-old member in the House of Representatives, plans to retire, and it just so happens that Tebow lives in the same 4th Congressional District.
“We do not pick favorites,” a key party strategist told Bedard, but “obviously a huge Florida football star would be an interesting candidate for our side of the aisle.”
In addition to living in the Jacksonville, Fla. district, Tebow also has a business, XV Enterprises, and the Tim Tebow Foundation there. The Heisman Trophy winner expressed interest in a potential run for political office two weeks ago.
“If there’s a chance you can make a difference someday in something, then that would be intriguing,” Tebow told Fox News.
Tebow, who is currently an analyst for the SEC Network, has not responded to the latest rumor. But the deadline to declare for the August 30 primary is June 24.
