NASCAR champ Carl Edwards seems to be open to trading his drivers seat for a spot in the U.S. Senate.
The 37-year-old didnt exactly rule out challenging Missouri Sen. Claire McCaskill, a Democrat whose second term in office expires in 2018.
I believe firmly in the principles that the U.S. was founded upon. If I could help, I definitely would consider it, he texted to the Associated Press on Wednesday.

I've also heard scores of his Nascar TV interviews, and he expresses himself very well, and is great on camera. Not only that, but he will be able to do celebratory back flips after political wins!
Just hope he or someone can defeat Mother McCaskill. Say goodbye Ma.
Can’t wait to see his election night backflip.
I sure hope he does. I want Claire to go out kicking and screaming.
Anyone notice she is keeping a very low profile lately?
She was one of Hillary’s prime sycophants - she’s probably out in the NY woods trying to run into her on a hike. By now Hillary probably doesn’t even remember Grannie Claire’s name.
Congressman Ann Wagner would be the most likely candidate to defeat McCaskill. She couldn't play the woman-card and Ann knows more about military and foreign policy than McCaskill as Ann is a former ambassador and current Congress rep. Establishment, yes... but usually in MO that doesn't totally disqualify you.
