EXCLUSIVE: RNC reacts to news of Trump 2020 GOP challenger

William Weld, former governor of Massachusetts, made a Monday announcement officially entering the 2020 presidential race as a Republican challenger to President Donald Trump.

“I’m in! #Weld2020.” Weld tweeted Monday afternoon.

In response, a Republican National Committee spokesperson said, “The RNC and the Republican Party are firmly behind the president. Any effort to challenge the president’s nomination is bound to go absolutely nowhere,” according to a tweet from Joe Perticone, politics reporter Business Insider.

CNBC further reports that a spokesman for the RNC was “dismissive of Weld’s challenge.”

“President Trump enjoys unprecedented support among Republicans,” CNBC reports the spokesperson as saying. “He has already delivered a long list of incredible accomplishments for conservatives and the country. The RNC and the Republican Party are firmly behind the president.”

“Any effort to challenge the president’s nomination is bound to go absolutely nowhere,” the spokesman concluded.

Weld is headed to New Hampshire on Tuesday to start two days of campaigning.
