WashPost: Massachusetts Ex-Governor Weld to Challenge Trump for GOP Presidential Nomination

WashPost: Massachusetts Ex-Governor Weld to Challenge Trump for GOP Presidential Nomination

Friday, 15 February 2019 09:49 AM

Bill Weld, the former Republican governor of Massachusetts who ran on the Libertarian Party ticket in 2016, said he will challenge U.S. President Donald Trump for the Republican Party's presidential nomination in the 2020 election, the Washington Post reported on Friday.

On Friday, Weld will be the featured speaker at a "Politics & Eggs" event in Bedford, New Hampshire.

Weld has indicated he may discuss his potential political plans during the Friday morning visit.

Weld recently changed his party registration from Libertarian back to Republican as he mulls a possible primary challenge against President Donald Trump.

Weld served as a Republican governor from 1991 until 1997. He later became a Libertarian and ran for vice president on a ticket with former New Mexico Gov. Gary Johnson in the 2016 election.

If he decides to launch a run for president as a Republican, he could be Trump's first challenger from within the party.
