Murdoch floats John Kerry as last-minute Dem 2016 candidate
News Corp. boss Rupert Murdoch is floating Secretary of State John Kerry as a Democratic presidential nominee as Hillary Clinton’s candidacy “sinks.”
“Watch Hillary’s candidacy sink and sink,” Murdoch tweeted Saturday morning. “Nobody buying and more big trouble coming on emails. Dems looking for a replacement. John Kerry?”
The Fox News owner donated to Clinton’s presidential primary campaign in 2008, and said in 2014 he could see himself supporting Clinton in 2016 depending “on the Republican candidate totally.”
In January, Murdoch urged former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg to enter the 2016 race amid Fox News’ feud with Republican front-runner Donald Trump.
“This is Bloomberg’s last chance,” Murdoch tweeted. “You never know until your hat in in the ring!”
