Do you fancy the sound of “Candace Owens, Congresswoman”? Or how about “Mayor Candace Owens”? “Governor”?
If so, I bring you good news: The popular activist and podcaster is considering a run for office.
She made clear as much on Twitter Thursday:
“I’m now honestly considering running for office. Never had any desire to previously, but something changed in me last night. Had a conversation with my husband, and I think it’s a plan.”

Are you partial to the plan?
As observed by The Daily Caller, “The former Turning Point USA activist has gained popularity in conservative circles for her support of President Donald Trump and her efforts to convince minority voters to leave the Democratic Party.”
In 2018, Candace began the “Blexit” movement — a minority migration from the the party of the donkey to a more conservative identity.
Here she is last year, laying it out at Blexit LA:
Speaking recently at CPAC, Candace predicted a Blexit triumph while calling the Left “a doomsday cult”:
“You will all recall when the Left — which, in my opinion, has morphed into a doomsday cult, feverishly and inaccurately predicting that everything President Trump says or does will end America — but you’ll all recall when they once again prophesied our doom… … ‘This is the Beginning of World War III,’ their headlines read. They promised us we were gonna head straight into World War III. … Of course, the war never happened. … “In the land of the free, in the home of the brave, I say this to you: There will be a Blexit. A black exit.”
As for winning an election, I believe she certainly has the charisma to garner votes.
However, the opposition has already called her out on her biggest ballot-banishing blemish.
It could definitely keep her out of the game.
If you haven’t already heard, Candace Owens…is a white supremacist (Language Warning):
