Democrat Webb weighing possible independent bid for White House

Democratic presidential candidate Jim Webb understands a free offer for the White House, and will hold a news conference about his contention on Tuesday; his campaign said on Monday.

Webb, a previous U.S. senator from Virginia, has insulated behind front-runner Hillary Clinton and her chief rival, U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont, in opinion polls, along with former Maryland Governor Marin O’Malley and former Rhode Island Governor Lincoln Chaffee.

Webb’s campaign declared the news conference at the National Press Club in Washington with a little statement headlined “Jim Webb to Consider Independent Run.”

In addition to his candidacy, Webb will discuss

“The campaign and his views of the political parties in the current (2016) election cycle,”

the statement said.

His campaign did not reply to email or telephone requests for more information.

The Democratic National Committee, which governs the party, declined to comment ahead of Webb’s announcement.

Webb had a shaky showing in the first Democratic candidates’ debate last week. Real Clear Politics, a website that aggregates polling data showed him with just over 1 percent general support in polls from late September to Oct. 18.

If Webb decides to make the jump from Democrat to independent, he would not be the first to make the switch.
