As the field of Democratic candidates seeking the 2020 Presidential nomination to run against President Donald Trump is growing more and more crowded.
But one question that has remained is whether or not a Republican would challenge incumbent Donald Trump for the Republican nomination.
We now have the answer.
Former Massachusetts Governor, Republican Bill Webb announced an exploratory committee for President on Monday, saying:
“It is time for patriotic men and women across our great nation to stand and plant a flag. It is time to return to the principles of Lincoln – equality, dignity, and opportunity for all. There is no greater cause on earth than to preserve what truly makes America great. I am ready to lead that fight.”
Though Americans everywhere would likely be relieved if Trump were to be ousted before the general election, Weld’s odds of clenching the nomination aren’t promising in the least.
Trump’s reelection campaign announced that it has raised nearly $30 million in its first quarter, and Republicans have remained widely unified in their satisfaction with Donald Trump.
Nonetheless, people commended Weld’s decision.
It’s about time; gotta get moving.
