Former Massachusetts Gov. Bill Weld, running to deny President Trump of the Republican Party’s 2020 nomination, admitted this week that voters are just really not interested in a challenger.
Weld officially launched his long-shot bid in April to block Trump’s renomination, saying “There is no greater cause on Earth than to preserve what truly makes America great. I am ready to lead that fight.”
He also called Trump a “one-man crime wave” and urged the president to resign.
But now, Weld is conceding that Republican voters actually approve of Trump and there’s little enthusiasm for anyone in the GOP to seriously challenge the president in 2020 — though he takes credit for cutting into Trump’s support within his own party.
