17 April, 2019, 11:37 | Author: Wade Massey
Bill Weld, a former two-term Republican governor of deep-blue MA, officially entered the 2020 presidential race Monday, mounting the only GOP primary challenge against President Trump's reelection bid so far.
"America has a choice", says the narrator of a video announcing Weld's candidacy.
"In these times of great political strife, when both major parties are entrenched in their "win at all cost" battles, the voices of the American people are being ignored and our nation is suffering", Weld said in statement. "I am ready to lead that fight".
Weld's move makes Trump the first incumbent president since George H.W. Bush in 1992 to face a notable primary challenge. Johnson and Weld have spent the day campaigning in Salt Lake City, the home town of former republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney. Mr Weld has released a campaign video which showcases his political style against the current president's. "The country deserves to have some fiscal constraint and conservatism".
He endorsed Democrat Barack Obama over Republican nominee John McCain in 2008, though he later said that had been a mistake.

The video says that Weld was the first Republican governor of MA in more than 20 years, calls him a "crime fighter" who as governor cut taxes, reformed the welfare program and balanced the state's budget, while making the state safer.
He also conceded that vague promises from Sanders and the campaign about their plans had contributed to the speculation. Trump has repeatedly said he will not because he's under audit, though Democrats have not retreated from the issue.
