Ex-DHS agent who inspired ‘Sound of Freedom’ ‘seriously considering’ run for Romney’s Senate seat

The former Department of Homeland Security (DHS) agent who inspired the hit film “Sound of Freedom” said Friday he is “very seriously considering” a run for the U.S. Senate in his home state of Utah to replace retiring Sen. Mitt Romney.

Tim Ballard made the announcement during an appearance on the digital show of former Trump White House press secretary Sean Spicer, where he said he had been approached by numerous “influential people” for weeks about a potential run before Romney announced Wednesday he would not be running for re-election.

“Since Sound of Freedom took out any opportunity for me to ever be an operator again — those days are done … They know my face. But starting several weeks ago, I’ve been asked by a lot of very influential people, names you would even know, asking me to throw in,” Ballard said.
