Former Rep. Joe Walsh (R-Ill.) is expected to announce his candidacy for president as a Republican, becoming the second prominent Republican to challenge President Trump for the party’s nomination.
The New York Times reported Wednesday that Walsh, now a radio host, will announce his candidacy as early as the weekend. Walsh argued in an op-ed for thew newspaper last week that the president needed a primary challenge from the right, and told the Times in an interview that he would announce his intentions before Labor Day.
The article goes on to state the following:
“If I do it, it’s going to be before Labor Day,” he told the paper.
Walsh joins former Massachusetts Gov. Bill Weld (R), who announced his candidacy earlier this year, as the second Republican challenger to mount the longshot challenge against Trump, whose approval rating among Republicans has hovered above 50 percent since he took office in 2017.
