SAN FRANCISCO, CA — Controversial talk show host and best selling author Michael Savage says he’s considering giving Democrat Senator Dianne Feinstein a run for her money in the upcoming Senatorial election.
“Some very important people have come to me and said ‘Savage, would you like to run as an independent for the U.S. Senate in the of California against the esteemed Dianne Feinstein?’ Now you may say ‘you don’t have a ghost of a chance.’ With all those illegal aliens, with all that union money, with no press on your side, how could you David run against the Goliath of Feinstein?” The native New Yorker turned San Francisco based commentator said Friday on his nationally syndicated radio show “The Savage Nation”.
“I’ve been holding down the fort for 24 years this March. 24 years in the radio business and I am younger than Dianne Feinstein,” the National Radio Hall of Fame inductee continued. “That’s right. I’ve been asked by a number of very powerful, important people to run as an independent for the U.S. Senate in the state of California.”
Savage, also known for his best selling books “Liberalism is a Mental Disorder,” “Trump’s War,” and “God, Faith and Reason” is as unapologetic as he is outspoken.
Banned from entering the U.K. on May 5, 2009 under former Prime Minister Gordon Brown, Savage was accused at the time of fostering hatred for his comments on immigration and Islam. On July 12, 2010, the government of then-Prime Minister David Cameron announced that Mr. Savage would continue to be banned from the country, a ban which stands in place to this day.
Admitting he’s also been “banned by Fox News” and other national television stations for “refusing to play the PC game” Savage and his millions of fans have been credited by president Donald Trump as playing a vital role in helping to secure Trump’s presidential win in 2016 (https://tinyurl.com/y7mlsmg3).
“Trump’s victory is in large part due to the blood, sweat and tears that you and I put in to get that man to Oval Office,” Savage told his listeners shortly after Trump was elected. “Never forget what a huge role you’ve played in creating history.”
Savage said Friday that if he chooses to run, it’s all or nothing.
“I am contemplating whether I really want to leave what I’ve worked for all my life and roll in the mud because politics is the dirty business on the planet,” Savage said of possibly giving up his radio show to dedicate his life to politics.
Meanwhile, Feinstein is again asking that delegates again endorse her for reelection.
“Today, more than ever, California and our nation’s progress are threatened on many fronts by Donald Trump and the Republicans in Congress…California Democrats can and must lead Democrats across the nation to victory. Please know that I stand with each and every one of you and that I deeply appreciate all you do for our party and for the values we share,” the 84-year-old wrote in a mailer sent to California Democrats last week (https://tinyurl.com/yd8w8ngj).
Savage has not yet revealed when he will announce his final decision.
