“Tucker Carlson is witty, blunt, and scoffs at absurd nonsense,” reads the campaign ad for the 2024 presidential election. “Tucker will crush Biden in the debate. The Republicans need a new leader and Tucker Carlson is ready to lead them,” the PAC video reads.
Carlson repeatedly rejected the idea of running for the White House. In 2021, he claimed that he would have entered the race if he was “the last man on earth.” Tucker Carlson told Insider in early May that he would announce New Hampshire’s presidential bid, later saying, “I’m kidding. Sorry.”
The Political Action Committee filed documents with the Federal Election Commission in late April, shortly after Carlson was fired from Fox News. The committee said that the financial side of the former presenter’s election campaign is not a problem.
