Republican Bill Weld to Challenge Trump for GOP Nomination in 2020

Bill Weld Who Pretty Much Endorsed Hillary Clinton In 2016 Will Challenge Donald Trump In 2020

On Monday's broadcast of CNN's "The Lead", former Massachusetts Governor Bill Weld (R) announced he is running for president in 2020 as a Republican.

"I'm in!" Bill Weld tweeted on Monday. "That's a ... serious matter in the Oval Office".

In addition to not being Donald Trump, Weld worked in the office of the Attorney General during the Reagan administration, served as Governor of MA from 1991 to 1997, and was Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson's running mate during the 2016 Presidential race (which, btw, they lost).

Trump enjoys a almost 90% approval rating among Republicans, according to Gallup.

Weld endorsed Democrat Barack Obama over Republican nominee John McCain in 2008, later saying it was a mistake to do so, and has enjoyed a decadeslong friendship with the Clintons, which began early in his career when he served alongside Hillary Clinton as a lawyer for the House Judiciary Committee during the Watergate proceedings.

Weld left the public arena but later moved to NY, where he would make a brief, unsuccessful bid to become the first person since Sam Houston to serve as governor of two different states.

The video finishes with the slogan: "A Better America Starts Here".

Weld has accused Trump of leaving the nation in "grave peril" and has said his "priorities are skewed toward promotion of himself rather than for the good of the country".

Although Weld will try to woo moderate Republicans turned off by Mr. Trump by touting his socially liberal but fiscally conservative platform, he will face an uphill battle matching the incumbent president's institutional support, war chest and electoral infrastructure. And while he's calling for a return to "principles" and "dignity", Weld clearly isn't shy about using some of Trump's most-maligned past comments against him.

But the challenge could have the potential for intraparty strife, which could weaken the incumbent or expose vulnerabilities that would later be exploited by a general election rival.
