Ex-MA Governor William Weld Enters Race for 2020 GOP Nomination

HeadlineApr 16, 2019

In more news about the 2020 elections, former Massachusetts Governor William Weld announced Monday he will run against Trump for the Republican presidential nomination. Weld is the first Republican to declare a challenge to Trump in 2020. Before becoming governor of Massachusetts, Weld served as a U.S. attorney, appointed by President Reagan. He was the running mate for Libertarian Party candidate Gary Johnson in the 2016 elections. Weld boasts a record of cutting taxes and pushing for spending cuts, but has more centrist views on social and environmental issues, supporting reproductive rights, LGBT issues and rejoining the Paris climate agreement. Weld is set to hit the campaign trail today in New Hampshire.
