Conservative political commentator Candace Owens may be considering taking advantage of her sudden thrust into the spotlight, and she’s already gotten some very vocal support.
The Turning Point USA communications director has been shaking up the status quo, calling on black Americans to wake up to the true colors of the Democratic Party and has made plenty of enemies along the way.
In a tweet on Tuesday, Owens admitted she only ever wanted to “inspire others,” not engage in political debate.
But she slammed the “recent onslaught of establishment types” against her, admitting that she may be rethinking her “position.”
I never got into this to be a politician—I simply wanted to inspire others. But the recent onslaught of establishment types trying to paint me as a dumb girl that landed where I am by chance, has me rethinking my position.
No one’s ever bet against what I can accomplish and won.

Owens recently shared a photo she had taken with President Trump in the Oval Office, noting that the “honor was truly mine.”
This is the greatest President of our lifetime.
As a matter of fact, not opinion.

Though she has not yet responded directly to the many calls for her to run for office, it seems Owens may have plenty of votes already in.
Your are brilliant, witty and extremely likable as well as being one of the most beautiful women in America… you’re a natural and you’ll succeed at whatever you choose to do… and I would never bet against you, Candace.. #CandaceForCongress
