Ken Bone: I'm 'More Undecided Than I Used to Be' About Election

Fox News' "Fox & Friends"

By    |   Tuesday, 11 October 2016 12:05 PM

Debate questioner Ken Bone, who has become an Internet star after posing a question to presidential nominees Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton about their energy policies during Sunday night's debate, said Tuesday he's still not sure who will get his vote.

"I think I'm actually more undecided than I used to be," Bone told Fox News' "Fox & Friends" program, joining the show from St. Louis, where the debate was held. "I want to hear something positive from one of the candidates instead of why I shouldn't vote for the other."

Bone, who works in the power industry, told the program that Trump probably represents his personal interests a bit more for that reason, but "at the same time, we have a Supreme Court vacancy," and if Trump is elected, "there's a real danger that we would take a step backwards on equal rights that we've done for all Americans over the last eight years."

Bone became famous almost as much for what he was wearing as for his question. He wore a red, half-zipped Izod sweater, which has sold out line since his appearance at the debate, and caught the attention of social media users for his everyman appearance.

Since Sunday, he's made several television appearances, including on the late night Jimmy Kimmel show, and was even offered $100,000 to appear on an adult entertainment webcam site, according to BuzzFeed reporter Sara Yasin, who tweeted a copy of the letter through her Twitter account.

Bone has not offered comment on the webcam offer, but did tell Fox News that he didn't even know he'd become a star until after the debate was over.

"We were not allowed to have any electronic devices with us and we were sequestered at the debate venue from 8 a.m. until the debate was over at 10 p.m.," Bone said. "We didn't have access to our phones or anything like that. When I turned my phone back on, when I got back to my car at 10:30 central, I had thousands of notifications and Twitter friend requests and Facebook friend requests. I'm just really glad that I have a small platform to encourage people to spark the debate on energy and get out and vote."

And, as it turns out, Bone hadn't initially planned to wear the red sweater that sparked so much attention.

"If you want to find the sweater, I bought mine at Kohl's in Wausau, Wisconsin," Bone said. "I was going to wear my grandpa's favorite suit [but] I got a little fatter than I used to be. I got in the car and tore the pants open. I had to switch to [an] emergency plan."

Bone said he can tell such stories "because I'm not running for office."
