Fox News broadcaster Geraldo Rivera is thinking of a new career.

He Tweeted today that he’s thinking of running for the US Senate from Ohio, taking the place of retiring Rob Portman.

Geraldo would run as a Republican, which would be funny since he was always aligned with liberal causes prior to meeting Roger Ailes.

Rivera has been living in Ohio with his 5th wife, Erica Levy, and their daughter. They married in 2003. He’s 77, she’s 46. He’ll turn 78 in July.
