Run, Candace, run!
Political commentator Candace Owens revealed on Twitter that she has been thinking about running for political office.
Owens and her husband prayerfully considered the call…
Then in an interview with Glenn Beck, Owens revealed that she will indeed run for office.
For those who aren’t familiar with Candace, she is an extremely popular pro-Trump commentator and is known for her fierce criticism of the Black Lives Matter movement.
She has appeared on Fox News multiple times and has spoken at CPAC, the conservative political action conference.
She is part of the new generation of online commentators that includes names like Ben Shapiro and Steven Crowder.
View Candace’s statement and interview with Glenn Beck:
Candace Owens is a fierce thinker who isn't afraid to speak her mind.
She regularly provides the conservative viewpoint on hot topics, especially on Twitter, which has been accused of suppressing conservative voices.
Owens grew up in Connecticut, though it is unclear what seat she is currently eyeing.
The Blaze has more details on Glenn Beck's interview with Owens:
Owens, 30, did not disclose exactly which office she was looking at, but declared that when she decides to run, she will win.
"I'll tell you something else, Glenn, I'll win," she said. "They won't know what hit them ... they're being dishonest, and they lie, and I've had enough of it."
Owens, who grew up in Connecticut, teased the announcement on Twitter just minutes before joining Beck on his radio program, saying that she was "honestly considering running for office" despite not having that desire ever before.
Beck brought up the tweet during the interview to confirm the news with Owens and ask what factors drove her to make the decision.
"You know, I was talking to my husband about this, and my frustration about all these governors and how dishonest they've been ... I'm just getting sick of it," Owens said in reference to gubernatorial actions amid the ongoing coronavirus outbreak in America. "So I said I said to my husband, you know, I think I should get into politics. I think I should run. I should surprise run, and take somebody for everything they have, and expose people."
While President Trump and his reelection campaign have been trying to win more of the black vote, Candace Owens has been a powerful voice in trying to spread that message.
If she runs for office, she will continue to help breakdown the perception and unfair criticism that the Republican party is a party for "old, white men."
Nevermind the fact that the Democrat's top two contenders are Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders.
Many users took to Twitter to express their excitement over Owens' impending political race. Some have even offered to work for Owens' campaign.
Candace Owens recently made headlines for tearing into the governor of Connecticut, her home state.
The governor claimed a pediatric fatality and blamed it on COVID-19.
However, it had not been medically determined yet whether or not the death was actually linked to the novel coronavirus.
Owens, who prefers facts over fear, quickly tore into the governor for appearing to fan the flames of fear.
The Daily Wire covered Owens' commentary:
“It is with heartbreaking sadness today that we can confirm the first pediatric fatality in Connecticut linked to [COVID-19],” Connecticut Gov. Ned Lamont (D) announced in a series of tweets Wednesday (posts below). “A 6-week-old newborn from the Hartford area was brought unresponsive to a hospital late last week and could not be revived. Testing confirmed last night that the newborn was COVID-19 positive.”
“This is absolutely heartbreaking,” the governor continued. “We believe this is one of the youngest lives lost anywhere due to complications relating to COVID-19. This is a virus that attacks our most fragile without mercy. This also stresses the importance of staying home and limiting exposure to other people. Your life and the lives of others could literally depend on it. Our prayers are with the family at this difficult time.”
Owens, who has family members who live in the state, unloaded on Lamont for what she portrayed as “scaring mothers” through “partial information” and “political doublespeak.”
“‘Linked to Covid-19’. What the hell does that mean?” Owens wrote in a series of posts responding to Lamont’s thread. “Did the newborn have pre-existing conditions— yes or no? Did the infant die OF coronavirus yes or no?”
“STOP with this political doublespeak,” she added. “Scaring mothers of newborns with partial information is SCUM BEHAVIOR.”
“‘Complicated by’ ‘Linked to’, has anybody else realized that ALL of these death announcements provide partial information?” Owens wrote in a follow-up post. “If you are going to start using the death of infants to scare people into doing what you want, you better start providing FULL information, [Gov. Lamont].”
In response to someone accusing her of suggesting that mothers should have “zero worry over COVID-19,” Owens wrote: “Both of my sisters, who live in a Connecticut, gave birth for the first time in these past 3 [coronavirus] weeks. What I am demanding, is that [Gov. Lamont] be more responsible and tell mothers the FULL picture, so as not to inspire undue mass panic.”
“Two things can be true at once: the [coronavirus] can be real, and corrupt politicians like [Gov. Lamont] and [Gov. Andrew Cuomo] can be lying to extract money from the federal government because their socialist-run states are out of money,” she added in another post later. “Both are true.”
While Lamont suggested that the baby died because of coronavirus, as reported by CT Post, chief medical examiner Dr. James Gill “said the actual cause of death has not yet been established.”
As recently as Feburary in San Diego, Owens has attracted crowds as large as 2,000.
She has an impressive 1.2 million followers on Facebook.
While we don't know for certain what seat she will run for, we are confident that she will help inspire positive change in this country while espousing conservative principles.
Good luck, Candace!
