One of Washington’s most probable contenders is being considered by “The View” to potentially join the program, according to an industry insider.

S.E. Cupp, a regular face on CNN’s relaunch of “Crossfire,” has been approached by “View” executives.

On Monday, Meghan McCain – a conservative pundit and daughter of former presidential hopeful Sen. John McCain – will guest co-host the program, the network confirmed yesterday. McCain and Cupp are likely being considered to fill the conservative co-host role of Elisabeth Hasselbeck, who departed the program in 2013.
