Michael Reagan: Any GOP Candidate Can Beat Hillary in 2016

By    |   Friday, 08 May 2015 09:50 PM

With so many Republicans — declared or not — seeking the 2016 presidential nomination, conservatives must "find out which horse they're actually going to ride all the way to the finish line," conservative commentator Michael Reagan told Newsmax TV on Friday.

"If their horse fails to make it to the finish line, they've got to find another horse to get on — not just go home — if indeed we want to win the election in 2016," Reagan, a son of former President Ronald Reagan, told J.D. Hayworth on "Newsmax Prime."

Just this week, three more Republicans entered the nomination sweepstakes: retired pediatric neurosurgeon Dr. Ben Carson, former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina, and former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, who won the Iowa caucuses in 2008.

They join already declared GOP candidates Sens. Ted Cruz of Texas, Rand Paul of Kentucky, and Marco Rubio of Florida.

Others considering a bid include Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, Govs. Chris Christie of New Jersey and Scott Walker of Wisconsin, and former New York Gov. George Pataki.

No matter who wins the nomination, Reagan told Hayworth that person can beat former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who announced last month that she was running for the Oval Office on the Democratic ticket.

That's why Reagan is voting for her in the California primary: he wants her to win the Democratic nomination.

"Any one of our possible candidates can beat Hillary Clinton in a general election," he said. "All of our candidates. One thing our candidates have that she has never had is likeability."

He pointed to recent statements by both Clinton and her husband, former President Bill Clinton, that have come under fire, including the former first lady's comments last year that the couple found themselves "dead broke" on leaving the White House.

"We have candidates that are relatable to the public," Reagan said, "and the Democrat candidate, the would-be candidate, is not relatable at all."
