SAN FRANCISCO, CA — Conservative author and radio talk show host Michael Savage announced this week he will decide whether or not to challenge Democratic Senator Diane Feinstein for her coveted California Senate seat by March 8.
In a statement posted to his website (https://tinyurl.com/ybs76pmk) Savage says that if he runs his platform will be based on his trademark commitment to borders, language, and culture.
“BORDERS, LANGUAGE, CULTURE: Three seminal words that have been the core of my credo for many years as a talk show host,” Savage wrote. “I have earned a unique platform to communicate with people nationwide and the philosophies and solutions I proposed have always resonated with voters, most notably the populist election of our current President Donald Trump. I have been the voice of the forgotten in California as radical Leftists have devastated my home state. After being approached by a number of people, I am now openly considering the race for the U.S. Senate.”
“Like many Americans, I am the son of an immigrant who had to work for where I am today,” Savage continued. “People relate to this work ethic, to this honesty that I share with them. For far too long, we have heard the stump speeches, the talking points, now is the time for truth.
“If I enter this race,” Savage challenged, “I will oppose Senator Dianne Feinstein for her seat, who is no longer endorsed by the California Democratic establishment. With the Democratic Party in such opposition, now more than ever the conservative citizens of California have the chance to be heard, to have a true representative in office.”
Savage, who has long been the subject of criticism by those he refers to as “fake Conservatives” says if he decides to run, he’ll be anything but your typical candidate.
“I’m not the kind of guy who’s going to go out and hug illegal aliens and wash their feet like Nancy Pelosi,” he said on his nationally syndicated radio show “The Savage Nation”. “I’m going to say, ‘Build a wall that’s so thick, a hurricane couldn’t blow it down.’ I’m not talking about a wall, I’m talking about a citadel. California needs to be sealed off.”
In addition to being the best selling author of books such as “Scorched Earth: Restoring the Country after Obama,” Stop the Coming Civil War: My Savage Truth,” and “God, Faith and Reason”, Michael Savage holds a Master of Science degree in botany and a Master of Arts degree in anthropology. Savage also obtained a PhD in 1978 from the University of California, Berkeley, in nutritional ethnomedicine.
“I have until March 8th to make my ultimate decision whether or not I will throw my hat in the race,” Savage wrote on his website. “For the time being, I will be carefully considering the advice and opinions offered by those of you who have supported me in the past.”
Calls for statement to Diane Feinstein’s representatives on a possible Savage challenge were met with “no comment”.
