Republican Primary Challengers To Trump Circulate, Mostly On Twitter

Former South Carolina governor Mark Sanford is traveling in Iowa this week, testing the waters for a possible presidential run. He’d be joining two other candidates challenging President Donald Trump in the Republican primary for the party’s 2020 presidential nomination.

While he hasn’t announced, Sanford told The Federalist earlier this week that he is “much” closer to running than when he first made the idea public just more than a month ago. He also said he would make his decision by next week.

“The reception has been more embracing than I thought it might have been,” Sanford said.

As he gets closer to launching a presidential bid, Sanford said he would avoid making personal attacks against the president and would instead make the country’s ballooning debts and deficits the centerpiece of his campaign.

“I think the spending issue is bigger than Trump’s personality,” Sanford said. “At the end of the day, I don’t think his personality can bring down our republic. I think our debt will.”
