Sports radio host Clay Travis, who made headlines last week after telling CNN’s Brooke Baldwin that he only believed in “the First Amendment and boobs,” says he might run for United States Senate.
Travis said on his Fox Sports radio show: “I think I could get elected,” adding that he’d consider running if incumbent Tennessee Sen. Bob Corker (R-Tenn.) decides not seek re-election in 2018.
“There has to be no incumbent and Peyton Manning has to not run,” he said. “Other than that I think I could beat anyone in the state.”
Travis is a long-time critic of ESPN and often slams the network for pushing a liberal agenda. Following the controversy from ESPN anchor Jemele Hill calling President Donald Trump a white supremacist, Travis’s profile has somewhat been elevated, especially after his CNN appearance last week.
“I’m a First Amendment absolutist. I believe in only two things completely: the First Amendment and boobs. And so once they made the decision,” Travis said on CNN before Baldwin interrupted the sports radio host. “Wait, did you just say you believe in the First Amendment and … wait, hold on, hold on, hold on. I just want to make sure I heard you correctly as a woman anchoring this show.”
Baldwin quickly ended the interview, and Travis will reportedly not be invited back to the network anytime soon.
Shortly after the encounter went viral, the potential future Senate candidate began selling “1st Amendment & Boobs” merchandise on his personal website.
Travis did not immediately respond for comment regarding a future Senate run.
