Matt Gaetz is a rising star in Washington, but it appears that the flashy Florida Representative is on the hunt for a new job, and he may have found it.
Gaetz is said to be getting ready to say “goodbye” to the DC swamp and “hello” to a new TV gig.

That’s right, the MAGA guy with the sunglasses is rumored to be joining Newsmax.
Can Matt follow in the footsteps of Tucker Carlson? He most definitely will. He has Tucker’s swagger and political views, and he enrages the left in the same way.
They also have a similar appearance…
Though reelection is still a long way off, Axios reports that Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-Fla., will not run for reelection, instead opting for a position at Newsmax.
According to Axios, the firebrand GOP lawmaker has privately told confidants that he might quit office early to pursue a career as a media personality, citing three sources with direct knowledge of the talks.
According to one of the sources, Gaetz has had preliminary discussions with Newsmax about his potential position.
Newsmax’s ratings skyrocketed in the weeks after the 2020 presidential election, when many conservatives were enraged by Fox News’ coverage of the election. Since then, the network’s ratings have leveled off.
The Florida Republican has been chastised for bringing a makeup bag with him by critics, but Gaetz knows that appearance is everything when it comes to television and he doesn’t apologize for trying to put his best foot forward.
Gaetz, a staunch supporter of former President Donald Trump, is one of the few Republicans able to call a spade a spade and back it up with reasoned debate.
Gaetz earned a law degree from William and Mary after graduating from Florida State University. Before being elected to Congress in 2016, he served as a state representative in the Republican-controlled Florida House of Representatives.
I have no interest in running against Marco Rubio for the US Senate.
In 2022 the only statewide position I would consider running for in the current political climate is Commissioner of Agriculture.
But things can change! (Not the Senate thing though) https://t.co/Ant7LCn9uY
