The Colbert Report host, Stephen Colbert, is entering the South Carolina primaries – again. The TV report show host, attempted to get on a ballot in 2008 but it was unsuccessful and now he’s giving it another go.
Colbert, 47, is polling at 5 percent in his home state, ahead of longstanding candidate Jon Huntsman.
“I don’t know if I can put myself through that again,” he said on Thursday’s broadcast. “Clearly, it’s a tough decision. I would not want to be in my shoes … but I am.”
In terms of position, Colbert says he is situating himself as a “Mitt-ternative,” against Republican frontrunner Mitt Romney.
Good luck to Colbert.
