Congressman Louie Gohmert Floats White House Run

Rep. Louie Gohmert, R-Texas, one of the toughest-talking lawmakers in Congress, said he hasn’t ruled out a run for the presidency in 2016.

But an aide, shortly after, said Gohmert was only speaking tongue-in-cheek and was not serious.

Still, when asked if he would support fellow Texas Republican Ted Cruz, who just announced he is running for the White House, Gohmert called the senator a good friend, but he wasn’t sure how to answer that just yet.

“Ted is a good friend and would be an outstanding president,” he said to The Hill. “However, I haven’t ruled out an exploratory committee myself.”

But an aide for Gohmert followed up the line of discussion with the Texas Tribune a little while later and said the congressman wasn’t completely serious.

“Washington, D.C., contains too many who do not recognize statements made with a figurative tongue in cheek, sometimes known as being ironic,” the aide said to the Texas Tribune.

    Come on now, we already have a packed stage! The congressman is great, but we have extremely well qualified people lined up for a run already… with qualified credentials as well as leadership & governance experience… & I’m not talking of Jed Bush either. I sure hope this is a ‘tongue in cheek’ comment.

    If he has two adult parents born and raised in the US, and he himself was born and raised in the US, he would be the “best of the best” choice we could make in electing him to the presidency.
