Is Tim Tebow about to get drafted again?
A website called Red Alert Politics wrote an editorial Thursday to call on Tebow to fill a Congressional seat that will be open after this term.
Republican Ander Crenshaw said this week that he is retiring as the representative of Florida's 4th district, which covers Tebow's home region around Jacksonville.
The Washington Examiner quoted a political strategist as saying that Tebow would be a "shoo-in" to win "because it is a safe Republican seat."
Now Tebow hasn't said anything about running to replace the 71-year-old Crenshaw, who was first elected to Congress in 2000. Asked last month about a political future, Tebow said, "I don't know at this time in my life. If there's there's a chance to make a difference some day at something, that's intriguing."
The endorsement from Red Alert Politics said that Tebow's inexperience shouldn't be an issue.
"At age 28, he would be the youngest member of Congress, yet he has arguably done more to help children than any current congressperson. Not only has he been a hero and a model of character for millions, he has also used the money he made through football to start the Tim Tebow Foundation, and his foundation is making a real impact, especially in Florida."
Until the Republican Party settles on a candidate to run for this seat in the November election, the Draft Tebow campaign only figures to gain momentum.
