In what may prove to be icing on the cake for Republicans, Hillary Clinton’s running mate in the 2016 election, U.S. Sen. Tim Kaine, could find himself facing a significant challenge for reelection in 2018.
Conservative firebrand Laura Ingraham, a YUGE supporter of Donald Trump, is said to be eyeing a Senate run in Virginia, according to the Washington Examiner.

Sources told the Examiner that Ingraham was approached by party insiders and is considering challenging Kaine.
Adding some credence to the claim, Ingraham’s business partner, Peter Anthony, in anticipation of a possible run, has begun buying website domains that could be used, such as: ingrahamsenate.net, ingrahamsenate.com, ingrahamforvirginia.com and ingraham2018.com.
Based on the reaction on social media, Ingraham can expect lots of spirited support, should she decide to throw her hat in the ring.
