The South Carolina loser who founded Bikers for Trump to block protesters at Trump campaign rallies now plans a campaign of his own. Chris Cox says he plans to run against Charleston Democrat Joe Cunningham for a US House seat, the State reports.

Cunningham defeated Katie Arrington in the 2018 election after she beat incumbent Mark Sanford in the GOP primary. In a Facebook post, Cox said he was “disappointed in the election of a liberal Democrat to represent me and my neighbors in Congress.”

He said he was “passing the torch” of Bikers for Trump, which provided an extra layer of security at Trump events, to his top lieutenant. Cox, who will be competing against at least four other Republicans in the primary, says his association with Trump will give him an advantage, the Post and Courier reports.

    Odd thing about some bikers. I used to ride on occasion with a local group, most of whom are aging doctors and dentists and lawyers and accountants but I got tired of the pamphlets and screeds and I just don’t any more.

    Maybe I’ll go back to Triumphs

      Always wanted a bike but realized I would probably kill myself so I never got one.

    I rode a bike for many years, and little more for more than a year with the PD. I never road with any of the groups mainly because I hated the Harley’s. However, competing for a parking spot on the University of Alabama campus, anything other than a car or truck was the wisest choice. I was named chairman of the parking and safety committee twice at Alabama. The most frustrating job ever. In the early eighties there were more that 16,000 students and only 7500 parking spaces. Almost always it a clusterf**K

    This is the antithesis of everything bikers are about. The old skool bikers would never kneel to establishment or any government official, especially not one that has no concept at all of the code. Honor. Loyalty. Respect.
    The one in the white house has none of these things. Chris cox is a traitor to the code any every actual biker who lives by it. Just looking for money and notoriety, selling out becoming a havk and a joke. Not a biker.
