Some Republicans are suggesting there could be a primary challenger to President Donald Trump when he runs for re-election in 2020.
One of the Republicans suggesting it is outgoing Arizona Senator Jeff Flake.
“I do believe if the President is running for re-election, and he continues on the path that he is on, there will be a huge swath of voters looking for something else,” Flake told ABC’s ‘This Week.’
Michael Johns, a former speechwriter for President George H.W. Bush and co-founder of the U.S. Tea Party Movement tells KTRH the establishment can try, but they won't succeed.
“There is absolutely zero political market for any Republican who is going to stand for open borders,” Johns stated.
And he adds it will be tough to run against what Trump has already done.
“He’s destroyed ISIS, has restored America’s position of strength in the world, he’s grown the economy over 3% GDP and created millions of jobs,” Johns explained, listing Trump’s first year accomplishments before tax reform.
The last time there was a challenge in the primary to an incumbent President was when Pat Buchannan challenged George HW Bush in 1992.
