Republican sources told the Examiner that they are reaching out to Tebow in hopes he will consider a bid. They are even quietly pulling together a potential campaign team that he could use for the upcoming August 30 primary.
The former Florida Gator quarterback is currently out of the NFL and working for the SEC Network. Tebow reportedly still has interest in playing football, but this could finally signal the end of his athletic career and the beginning of a political career -- assuming he takes the leap.
Tebow would have until June 24 to declare and run for the office.
