Arnold Schwarzenegger may not be done with his political career. Reports indicate that the former California governor, a registered Republican, is looking to challenge Democrat Diane Feinstein for her Senate seat in the 2018 election.
Daniel Ketchell, Schwarzenegger’s spokesman, said the former actor-politician-reality TV host is keeping his options open.
“Right now, Gov. Schwarzenegger’s focus is on using his platform to bring some sensibility and coherency to Washington by fighting for redistricting reform, like we did in California,’’ Ketchell told Politico. “We are keeping all of our options open as far as how we can accomplish that.”
Schwarzenegger served as California governor from 2003 to 2011, leaving office with a dismal 23 percent approval rating in the consistently left-leaning state.
Despite this low number, experts like David McCuan, a political analyst at Sonoma State University, say not to rule him out as a Republican hopeful.
“Schwarzenegger is someone who could play a huge role if Republicans wanted any hope of having relevance in California.’’
