Conservative political commentator Candace Owens announced on Thursday that she plans on running for a political office, but she has not said when it will be and who it will be against.
Owens, the host of “The Candace Owens Show” on PragerU, made the announcement on Twitter. “I’m now honestly considering running for office,” tweeted Owens. “Never had any desire to previously, but something changed in me last night.”
Her tweet said that she spoke with her husband, George Farmer, about running for office, and they agreed it was a plan.
The tweet was posted before Owens appeared on “The Glenn Beck Program” on Blaze Radio. She confirmed that she intends on running for office on that show.
She said that she wants to run for office because she has become frustrated with certain governors and how dishonest they have been during the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic.
“Watching the way these governors are lying and mismanaging, I’m getting sick of it,” she said. “I said to my husband that I think I should get into politics.”
The office she will be running for will be a surprise announcement. While she did not specify if it will be in 2020 and who she will be facing, she claimed that she is eyeing a seat.
She speculated that it might be in Connecticut or New York. She grew up in Connecticut, and she spent her early twenties living in New York. She said that she has not spoken with her mentor, American President Donald Trump, about running for this office.
“I’ll win the entire thing,” she said. “And they won’t know what hit them.”
Owens and her manager, Gina Florio, could not be reached for comment in time for publication.
