Could David Barton be the next Senator from Texas? According to a story on TheBlaze, possibly. Glenn has been vocal about his support of a potential run by Congressman Louie Gohmert (R-TX) to unseat incumbent Senator John Cornyn (R-TX), but so far Rep. Gohmert has been reluctant. Now it appears as though Glenn could have another favorite in the race.
“There’s a story that’s breaking out on TheBlaze. Who would have seen this coming,” Glenn asked on radio this morning. “We told you about Louie Gohmert. We told you about Louie Gohmert possibly running for the Senate. Here’s the thing. He’s going to run for Speaker of the House because that’s what he’s going to do. I feel it. I’m just saying that’s what gonna happen. He’s going to run for Speaker of the House.”
“He doesn’t know that yet,” Pat quipped. “Then who for the Senate seat? Who do you have in mind?”
“Senator David Barton,” Glenn responded.
Tea Party activists are reportedly urging Christian historian David Barton to primary against Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas). The move comes as some Texas Republicans question Cornyn’s devotion to conservative values.
Rick Green, a close adviser to Barton and a speaker for the historian’s WallBuilder‘s organization, told National Review Online (NRO) that more than 1,000 Tea Party and conservative leaders have asked Barton to run.
“Senator David Barton,” Pat said. “It’s got a nice ring to it, doesn’t it? Is he open to it?”
TheBlaze has yet to receive a comment from David Barton on his intentions, but Glenn is certainly excited about the possibility of a Senate run from his good friend.
“If you’re John Cornyn right now, you’re afraid,” Pat said.
“Quiver in your boots and hide, John,” Glenn concluded.
