Larry Elder is a conservative commentator and among the media’s most sought-after black conservative voices.
He used his recent celebrity on Fox News Channel opinion shows to launch an ultimately failed 2021 GOP bid to take California incumbent Gov. Gavin Newsom’s post in a recall election. However, he finished far ahead of the roughly four dozen other Newsom challengers.
“I’m running for president,” Elder recently told the Des Moines Register. “And I’m not running against anybody on the Republican side … . I’m running against Joe Biden if he runs, or Kamala Harris if she runs.”
Elder previously hosted a conservative talk radio show for decades until April of this year. He is also the executive producer of two recent documentaries, “Uncle Tom,” and “Uncle Tom II.”
