Axios is reporting that pro-Trump Republican Rep. Matt Gaetz (FL) is eyeing an early retirement from Congress and is interested in pursuing a job at NewsMax.
The outlet cites three sources that claim Gaetz is “seriously considering not seeking re-election and possibly leaving Congress early for a job at Newsmax.”
“Gaetz has told some of his allies he’s interested in becoming a media personality, and floated taking a role at Newsmax,” they write.
One of the sources even states that the emphatic Trump supporter and the network have already engaged in discussions about the role he might fill.
The congressman’s office did not respond to requests for comment according to Axios.
Gaetz was elected to Congress in 2016 and has been a loyal supporter of former President Donald Trump even after his departure from office.
