Mark Sanford may challenge Trump in primary


I guess Sanford must be bored. It's funny that Trump attacked him for cheating on his wife. We know Trump would never do that !

"Mark Sanford of South Carolina found out the hard way, in his surprise primary defeat [that] having a conservative voting record is less important than demonstrating total loyalty to Mr. Trump."

It'd be especially cool if he picked a running mate from the other side, to be truly historic and unique. I'm thinking Eric Swalwell.

Yes but as the first link notes, the woman who beat him in the GOP primary lost in Nov. to a Democrat.

Its going to be a tough road, especially given that his home state might not bother holding primaries.

Yes but the woman who beat him in the primary beat him because she was more pro-Trump than him. He may face someone in the 2020 Republican primary who is also more pro-Trump than him. Donald Trump in particular is somewhat pro-Trump.

Being more pro Trump than Sanford did not help her in the general election since she lost.

Sanford has 0% chance of beating Trump in the primaries , he would just be wasting time if he ran. I don't think Jesus could beat Trump although it might be close.

Jesus would get destroyed in a Republican primary, The things he preached are the things Republicans hate.

Look, if Jesús “Chuy” García wants to run for the GOP nomination, I'm willing to support that.

Absolutely. Jesus is against pretty much every single thing the current Republican party is for. And vice versa.

Jesus would be called a socialist, a hippie and a wimp. He'd be absolutely the wrong color.
