Fox News host Eric Bolling is considering a Senate run after his time at the network is done, Politico reported Monday.

Bolling, who is currently a “Fox News Specialists” host, told the news outlet that he would consider running in a Southern GOP primary, but didn’t specify the state.

Bolling, a vocal supporter of President Trump, said he hasn’t taken any specific actions toward running but criticized current Republican politicians for not being conservative enough.

“A lot of Republicans run as conservatives only to be elected, and we find out they’re not conservative at all,” Bolling told Politico.

Bolling, a former commodities traders, was in talks with the Trump transition team to join the administration as an economic adviser last November.

The Fox News host, who regularly filled in for Bill O’Reilly, was set to have to his own show after O’Reilly was forced out over sexual harassment allegations but joined an ensemble show instead.

Fox re-signed Bolling to a multi-year contract last month.
