Sanford announces challenge to Trump

Sanford announces challenge to Trump
The Hill, Sep 8, 2019

Former South Carolina governor and congressman Mark Sanford said on Sunday that he will challenge President Trump in 2020 as a Republican.

"I’m here to tell you now that I am going to get in," he said on “Fox News Sunday.”

Sanford said last week that he was focused on Hurricane Dorian would wait until after the storm had passed to announce his decision on a White House bid.

He previously said he would give himself until Labor Day to make a choice.

Since announcing his potential White House bid, the former lawmaker has visited New Hampshire and Iowa, causing further speculation that he would launch a campaign.

Sanford could face an uphill battle. The Republican parties in Kansas and Sanford’s home state of South Carolina on Saturday voted to cancel their GOP primaries.

Too bad we have to make such a choice.  A washed up has been vs. an idiot who treats the postion of POTUS like a reality TV show.

Shouldn't have happened, but that boat sailed 500 Tweets ago.

A POTUS MIA on the Applachian Trail might be better than what we have now.  Especially if that map veers toward Alabama.   :silly:

Never heard of the guy.  The only Sanford that I remember is Fred.

"I believe in the United States of America as a Government of the people, by the people, for the people; whose just powers are derived from the consent of the governed; a democracy in a republic; a sovereign nation of many sovereign states; a perfect union one and inseparable; established upon those principles of freedom, equality, justice and humanity for which American patriots sacrificed their lives and fortunes. I therefore believe it is my duty to my country to love it; to support its Constitution; to obey it laws; to respect its flag; and to defend it against all enemies." -William Page

Who knew the path to the Presidency runs down a path on the Appalachian trail with a naked lady?

Fred would call this particular Sanford a big dummy.

Sanford stepped on his Johnson and ruined it for any Pubbie in that election.  Hardly something "Trumpkins" can be blamed for...but go on ahead.  There will be applause.

How to split the anti-Trump vote and allow him to coast to another primary win in three easy steps.

Whoever ends up the opposition candidate, we need to settle on ONE.

For those who actually ARE concerned, and don't just "seem" concerned, he's no better than the man he's challenging.

But you'll be glad to know that the pseudo-religious Liberty University is mocking Sanford's morality while dismissing Trump's.

Character still matters.  It always matters.

Sorry, but I'll pass on the three jokers who is challenging Trump.  They are not serious.

I've been a fan of Sanford's for years,  back when Trump was a New York liberal. A lifetime ACU rating of 92 and a proven record as a dogged fiscal conservative is good enough for me.

  Count me in.  We cannot retain the Presidency and the Senate with Trump as our nominee.   I will not stand idly by and be a sycophant.

Do you think Sanford actually has a realistic shot at doing anything other than giving the Democrats raw material for their ad campaign against Trump?

Sanford will be gone quickly.  He will not have the funds to go very far, unless Soros begins funding him.

And Jazz, you must buy in to this media nonsense with their rigged polls, etc.  Trump will win by a landslide.  He is gaining in all the demographics that typically go to the Democommies.  I worked in the media for a number of years, and the angle they take is directed tied to WHO owns their network, publication, etc, and they no longer adhere to any journalistic standard.

Trump gets 28-40 Electoral states.  And that is the only metric that matters.
