This news follows the announcement that Rep. Ander Crenshaw, a 16-year House appropriator from Jacksonville, would retire this year at the end of his term.
Tebow, 28, lives in the district and runs his foundation, the Tim Tebow Foundation, in Duval County.
“If there’s a chance you can make a difference someday in something, then that would be intriguing,” Tebow recently told FOX News at his foundation’s golf tournament.
Following Crenshaw’s announcement, the website Red Alert Politics endorsed Tebow as a potential candidate.
