Weld for president? Probably not

William Weld (former Mass governor)A Massachusetts-based pro-family activist is wondering why former Massachusetts Governor William Weld would seek the Republican nomination for president when it's "obviously not going anywhere."

Weld has officially announced he will challenge President Trump in next year's GOP primaries, claiming the country is "in grave peril" and that he "cannot sit quietly on the sidelines any longer."

While there is continued speculation that former Ohio Governor John Kasich may also challenge the president, Weld is the first Republican to officially run against Trump in 2020. His views, however, are antithetical to the Republican base, as he is pro-abortion, for same-sex marriage, and in support of so-called man-made climate change. He also supported Barack Obama in 2008. Even the liberal Washington Post expects Weld's challenge to be a spectacular failure.

Camenker, Brian (MassResistance)"It's interesting that he made his announcement on CNN, which isn't exactly where the base goes to get the news," comments MassResistance President Brian Camenker. "It sort of stymies everybody here. In Massachusetts, there is no possible way the Republicans will vote for him. Everybody knows that he endorsed Obama twice. It's not really a joke so much that it's a big mystery why he would do something like this, because it's so obviously not going anywhere."

Camenker thinks Weld must be doing this because he has nothing else to do.
