Hillary Clinton and Elizabeth WarrenA Massachusetts-based pro-family activist hopes that a true conservative Republican will get the chance to challenge incumbent Democratic Senator Elizabeth Warren in the fall.

The first-term senator (right) has been listed among the "top tier" potential Democratic challengers for President Trump in 2020 – but first, Warren has to win re-election in 2018. That would appear to be a non-issue as the race has been rated either "solid Democrat" or "safe Democrat."

Brian Camenker, president of MassResistance, says the certainty of Warren's re-election could depend on who wins the GOP primary, which currently involves three major candidates. OneNewsNow asked Camenker about those candidates.

"Beth Lindstrom ... was part of the [Gov. Mitt] Romney administration and a big operative in his political machine," he shares. "And a guy named John Kingston, a multimillionaire ... best known for being virulently anti-Trump."

Camenker, Brian (MassResistance)The third major GOP challenger is State Senator Geoff Diehl – a "good guy," says Camenker.

"He was basically one of the Trump chairmen of Massachusetts – and he's pretty much of a social conservative," says the pro-family activist. "So he would be my favorite. Can he win against Elizabeth Warren? It's hard to say. I mean Republicans – except for Charlie Baker, the governor – haven't done very well except in certain legislative races."

According to Camenker, Diehl has his work cut out for him because he is having to fight just to get his name on the primary ballot. Governor Baker, he says, wants Lindstrom to get the nomination and will try to stop Diehl at the GOP state convention.

"The Diehl people right now are scrambling to try to get delegates [and] at least get to 15-percent and get on the ballot," he explains. "Personally, I think that Diehl will have enough support to pull it off and get into the primary."

And Camenker believes if Diehl gets on the ballot, he will win the GOP primary.
