New Jersey voters haven't sent a Republican to the U.S. Senate since 1972, but that isn't discouraging Fox News host Geraldo Rivera from pushing forward with a potential bid.
Rivera, who first floated the possibility of running for Senate in 2014 on his radio show Thursday, again teased a prospective campaign during an appearance on Fox News Friday.
"I really do believe, as a modern Republican, that there is a point of view that is unrepresented in states like New Jersey," Rivera said as he launched into what sounded like the seeds of a stump speech.
"There can be a new vitalization of the Republican Party, a concept where we extol the virtues of good business and fiscal policy and we fight the deficit and we don't advocate the printing of money in obscene amounts just to cover our debts. We have to rein in entitlements."
But on social issues, Rivera tacked left.
