Controversial conservative pundit Candace Owens announced on Thursday that she is planning a run for office, telling commentator Glenn Beck that she's "eyeing a seat right now" and that she fully intends to win it.
Owens said on Beck's show that she has been inspired to run in part by the actions of various American governors that have issued sweeping shutdowns of state economies in response to the coronavirus panic.
"All these governors and how dishonest they've been ... I'm just getting sick of it," she said.
Owens on the show pointedly did not disclose what level of office she is planning to run for.
"I am serious about it. I am very serious about it," she said.
