California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger recently stated that he has no intention of running for Senate but he also hinted that he wasn’t done with politics.
The 69-year-old “Terminator” star deliberately shut down reports that he was going to run for Senate in 2018 but during that statement, he said he wanted to repair Washington:
“I’m deeply flattered by all of the people who have approached me about running for Senate, but my mission right now is to bring sanity to Washington through redistricting reform like we passed here in California.”
The governor continued,
“Gerrymandering has completely broken our political system and I believe my best platform to help repair it is from the outside, by campaigning for independent redistricting commissions. Thank you for your kind messages and all of the support and I hope you’ll join me in my battle against gerrymandering with the same enthusiasm.”
The former actor has recently opened schedule after quitting his hosting position on the Celebrity Apprentice. His decision seems to have been based on political issues since Donald Trump helped produce the show as well as hosted it for fourteen seasons.
Schwarzenegger said that people had a “bad taste” from the President’s interaction with the show. With Trump being the executive producer, it seems likely the governor quit as a way to stand up against the now president.
