Trump Will Face a Serious Primary Challenge: Mark Sanford Is In

Trump’s road to reelection just got rockier. Mark Sanford, former South Carolina governor, former Congressman from South Carolina, will oppose Trump for the 2020 Republican nomination for president. Though Sandford is not the first announced primary opponent, he is likely the most threatening. “I plan to announce that back home this week.,” Sanford told “Fox News Sunday” host Chris Wallace, adding, “But I am here to tell you now that I am going to get in.” Sanford is the third Republican to announce a primary challenge to Trump, joining former Rep. Joe Walsh, R-Ill., and former Massachusetts Gov. Bill Weld. After hinting at a run for months, Sanford said he would focus his bid on spending and the growing national debt. I am no Republican, but I have always found Sanford to be competent, thoughtful, a unifier, and someone to whom I would listen. I held those thoughts long before he announced his challenge to Trump. Trump has suspected for some time that Sanford – and the other announced candidates – would oppose him, and weeks ago sent out a tweet worded and reasoned in typical Trump fashion: “Can you believe it? I’m at 94% approval in the Republican Party, and have Three Stooges running against me,” Trump tweeted last month. “One is ‘Mr. Appalachian Trail’ who was actually in Argentina for bad reasons. Another is a one-time BAD Congressman from Illinois who lost in his second term by a landslide, then failed in radio. The third is a man who couldn’t stand up straight while receiving an award. I should be able to take them!” Sanford is the former governor caught having an affair with an Argentinian woman. Yet it is remarkable that Trump – the man who pays porn stars for sex and then pays them six figures to be quiet about it – would bring up such a mistake. But, we are talking about Donald Trump, man without shame. Sanford seems to have made peace with his issues and moved on. His voice and opinions will add needed substance to the 2020 discussion. Oh, and one other item of note: Sanford’s announcement comes as his home state’s GOP canceled its 2020 primary following other states canceling their Republican primaries. So it goes for people not named “Donald Trump” seeking the nomination of the Trumplican party for president. We hope this ends the discussion about similarities between states that canceled primaries during the Obama, George W. Bush and Bill Clinton campaigns. **** Peace, y’all Jason jmiciak@yahoo.com
