As the number of Democratic presidential candidates grows by the day, the real trouble for President Donald Trump in the 2020 election might come from a challenger within his own party.
But it’s not who you think it could be.
Candidates like Jeb Bush, Marco Rubio, Mitt Romney, and even John Kasich have all tried – and failed – to take down Trump.
But there is ONE Republican candidate with the potential to challenge Trump in 2020… if he wants to do it.
As first reported by The Daily Caller, Maryland Governor Larry Hogan is considering a 2020 run… but first, he’ll have to see how special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation turns out.
Hogan recently told reporters, “The whole country is waiting for this to come out. Don’t get the impression that I’m sitting here like this vulture waiting for some bad news.
According to the report, Hogan who spent most of his interview with the Washington Post this week criticizing President Trump, made a point to state, “I come from the Ronald Reagan school of politics,” and shutdown Trump’s nationalism and many of his policies.
However, if Hogan were to run, Trump is looking at an uber-popular Republican governor who has managed to stay in office in a typically Democratic state…
Hogan noted, “I’m for a bigger tent, for coming up with ideas and solutions that can reach a wider audience… I appeal to Republicans because my message is: I haven’t abandoned my principles. I’ve just said let’s deal in the art of the possible.” In his interview, Hogan even mentioned going up against President Trump and admitted that if it were to happen today – he knows he couldn’t win… “I also have been around long enough to know that things can change very rapidly… A lot can happen all spring and summer and into the fall,” Hogan stated.
But lucky for Trump, the RNC has made their message very clear… they WANT Trump and only Trump.
Like GOP RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel who recently said, “What would any Republican be thinking saying, ‘this is a guy I’m going to run against? So have at it, go ahead, waste your money, waste your time and go ahead and lose.”
And we can’t forget… the RNC pledged to give Trump its “undivided in support” at the beginning of the year.
