Dwyane Wade is someone who has been thrust into the political limelight. Overall, this isn’t necessarily because he wants to get into politics. It’s actually because he is a good father to his transgender daughter Zaya. D-Wade and Gabrielle Union have been accepting of her identity, which has subsequently led to criticism. Additionally, the Wade’s have decided to leave Florida due to the anti-trans laws that plague the state.
However, Wade could be coaxed back to Florida as he is now being considered as a potential Senate candidate. According to Uproxx, there are various Democratic donors and officials who think a big name like Wade could challenge Rick Scott in the Senate. Although this feels like a long shot, there are some people out there who want to see this happen. If anything, Wade could help pass legislation that is more favorable towards trans people.

Dwyane Wade & Grant Hill Get Major Consideration
“Dwyane Wade is a Florida legend, whose leadership past and present has a lot of folks in our state sending feelers out,” Democratic donor Ray Paultre said. “We have seen former athletes, in both parties, bring something special to the political landscape. He hasn’t been officially approached, but he is on the list of four or five dream candidates to challenge Rick Scott.” Moreover, there is also some fanfare around Grant Hill. One donor even said that the former NBA player could raise a whole lot of money.
It isn’t like it would be the first time that celebrities have ran for some type of office. However, neither Hill nor Dwyane Wade have actually voiced any intentions to run. For now, some donors are simply thinking about how they can win back Florida, which has become more right-wing than ever before. Let us know what you would think of a D-Wade or Grant Hill Senate run, in the comments section below. Additionally, stay tuned to HNHH for more news and updates from the sports world.
