During an interview on Glenn Beck‘s radio show on Thursday, New York Times bestselling author Brad Thor dropped a bombshell when he revealed he’s committed to running for president.
“I believe Brad is one of the most courageous people out there. Because — he is in business. You’re selling a book. And what you said — I shouldn’t say what you said — because what you said was not controversial,” Glenn said as he introduced Thor.
Thor then took things a step further when he made it clear he’s in the race solely to defeat presumptive GOP nominee Donald Trump.
“I announced to Reince Priebus on Twitter, I said, ‘If it takes announcing my candidacy to get onto the stage to debate Donald Trump, I said I would do it.’ So I announced,” Thor said.
If it takes formally declaring my candidacy to get on stage to shred Trump, consider this my declaration. #Thor2016

Co-host Stu Burguiere told listeners that this debate might actually happen.
“You’ve got Trump and Clinton against Brad Thor,” Stu said. “Imagine Brad Thor going up against Trump and Clinton on the same stage.”
