Former WINK Anchor Trey Radel Running For Congress

Trey Radel, a former anchor at WINK, is running for the U.S. House of Representatives, the Naples News reports.

Radel left Fort Myers CBS-affiliate WINK in 2010. At the time, he said politics was his passion and he had never “felt more compelled than right now to get involved.” He went on to become a conservative host on a local radio station.

“I am running because I love this country, I believe in this country and I believe in you,” Radel said on his radio show Friday. He stepped down from his position immediately after he announced his Congressional run.

Radel seeks the seat held by Rep. Connie Mack (R-FL), who recently announced plans to run for the U.S. Senate.
