    2020 Rep POTUS candidate catch all discussion thread

    May as well get this started as I'm guessing there will be more

    Pres Donald Trump (assumed)
    William Weld (Fmr MA governor and Libertarian VP candidate)
    Joe Walsh (Talk radio host and fmr Illinois congressman)
    Mark Sanford (Fmr SC Gov)

    Thanks for posting this Bamaro, but I don't think this is going to be a very long thread. I don't see Weld as any real threat.

    This thread is a joke, right?

    Maybe wishful thinking on my part but I expect a few more

    If the special investigation can force Trump out this will be an interesting thread. I also think it will be the best thing for republicans long term. I doubt any Republican but Trump will win the presidency in 2020 but the sooner that guy is kicked out of the party the better.

    Its official
    William Weld, the former governor of Massachusetts, announced Monday that he will challenge President Donald Trump for the Republican nomination for president in 2020.
    "I'm in!" Weld said in a tweet announcing his candidacy.
    Weld, who ran for vice president on the 2016 Libertarian Party ticket headed by presidential nominee Gary Johnson, is the first Republican to declare a bid to deny Trump a second term in the White House.

    The Republican National Committee has taken steps to head off a potential primary challenger, voting to express its “undivided support” for the president. And the Trump campaign has been staffing up with party insiders to map out a delegates strategy to ensure there are no surprises at the 2020 convention.
    A group of “Never Trump” Republicans led by Weekly Standard found Bill Kristol have been holding meetings about recruiting a primary challenger against Trump. The group has not decided on a potential challenger but does not view Weld as a top recruit.

    If Pete somehow wins the nomination I think Trump dumps Pence.
