Former Gov. William Weld, who was the Libertarian Party’s nominee for vice president in 2016, is mulling a run for president and could make an announcement about a possible presidential run in the next few weeks, WCVB reports.
He would run as a Republican. The news makes Weld the first who could create a primary challenge for President Donald Trump in 2020.
Matt Lewis: “Weld may be the ice-breaker, but he’s a perennial candidate whose fealty to the Republican Party is suspect, having defended Hillary Clinton while running as the Libertarian Party V.P. candidate in 2016. His value will likely be making it easier for others to take the primary plunge.”Save to Favorites
