Comedian Stephen Colbert will join the race for the White House after announcing plans to run for presidency of the United States.
The funnyman, 43, plans to run in his native state of South Carolina and will represent both a Democrat and Republican candidate to allow him to “lose twice.”
Colbert has been courting rumors of his candidacy but had previously refused to confirm or deny the speculation.
But he finally made the announcement on his show The Colbert Report on Tuesday night, saying, “After nearly 15 minutes of soul searching, I have heard the call.”
