According to a story by Politico, Ed Stack, Dick’s Sporting Good’s CEO, is “quietly” testing a presidential bid as a third-party candidate.
Yes, please do run. And while you’re on the campaign trail please elaborate on your plans to repeal the 2nd Amendment.

Apparently, Ed Stack has grown tired of driving down the stock price of Dick’s and would like to move on to something bigger.
Brilliant. He’s running his business into the ground, so now he wants to jump ship.

The CEO of Dick’s Sporting Goods, Ed Stack, is reportedly “testing the waters for a possible third-party presidential bid,” according to Politico.
The Washington, D.C., based newsmagazine says that focus groups in Wisconsin — a key battleground state that went narrowly to now-President Donald Trump in 2016 — received questions about Stack, including whether they would be willing to vote for Stack in a head to head matchup against Trump, former Vice President Joe Biden, and Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA).
The questions reportedly referred to a potential third party run, making Stack, who is a longtime Republican donor, a wild card in the 2020 campaign, rather than a primary challenger in either party.
Stack may be best known for being the CEO who halted assault rifle sales at Dick’s Sporting Goods stores — and the chain’s partner store, Field & Stream — following the school shooting in Parkland, Florida, and now restricts all customers under the age of 21 from purchasing any firearm. More
The real story is the publisher asked a 12 person “focus group” to help pump Stack’s book and the media fell for it hook, line, and sinker.
