Former WWE World Champion Could Be Next Republican Senator From Tennessee

Seven-foot-tall Kane not ruling out a possible run

Glenn Jacobs, the seven-foot-tall professional wrestler better known as Kane, just might be the next Republican senator from Tennessee.

The former WWE world champion (and uncompensated Daily Caller columnist) is already being touted by Tennessee tea-party groups as the man who can beat moderate GOP Sen. Lamar Alexander in 2014.

"It's well known that Lamar Alexander is considered by most as a RINO (Republican In Name Only)," reads a late-May statement from the Tennessee Alliance of TEA Party & Liberty Groups. "If Mr. Jacobs actually announces his candidacy against Alexander, with such a famous name known around the world, this would be a prime situation for ALL of the Tennessee TEA Parties to strongly support his candidacy."
