Just Out Of Curiousity If A Republician Was To Run Against Trump Who Would Be The Most Formidable Challenger?
I saw this article posting yhis sceanario on Drudge and I must admit that it peeked my interest. (link below)

I don't believe that it could be an unknown or a minor past contender such as, Jeb, Rubio, Cruz, Christie, Paul or the like.

According to the article, Maryland Republican Gov. Larry Hogan has seemed to "float" the possibility, however I find it to be a wishful long-shot.

The only contender I could come up with was Mitt.
Lot's of power behind the family lieage and a long standing career with a ton of political posturing and knowledge.
Strong background and name recognition.
Comes off as a strong right-wing conservative.
(Personly I think Romney's a dip-wad...but I can't really come up with anybody else with strong enough GOP credentials who might be able give President Trump a real run for his money)

I don't actually believe that any Republician is going to try to usurp Mr. Trumps position, however it is an intriguing thought to play around with.

Any thoughts on this from my fellow GLP'ers.

I listed the link below.

No one would be a ‘formidable challenger’, especially not Romney.

No man.....that article piqued your interest. It didn't peek in on your interest. Trust me....


The only person that would give Trump a serious run for his money on the right would be Ted Cruz again imo. And Mr. Cruz is smart enough not to try.

Dr Rand Paul. No dirt on him, no skeletons to worry about. Even Trump likes him and seeks his counsel. A Constitutional Libertarian. Opposes usurpation of the Constitution and Bill of Rights. A mid-west scholar that appeals to the middle class of all shapes, sizes, colors and genders will common sense.

Because he did so well the last time around right? Not saying Rand is awful but one day he'll do something to make you love him and the next he'll seemingly abandon his party. Not saying I'm a die hard GOP guy but we need a united front against the demonrats right now. Once they are defeated, then we clean out the conservative party. Rand won't unite shit....

I am in full agreement with your assessment regarding Rand Paul. -- No one comes even close to the moral equivalency along with this die hard devotion to stand up, embrace and enforce true Constitutional Values like Rand Paul. (As did his father Dr. Ron Paul)

However, just as his father was marginalized by the MSM so would Rand be. If I had my druthers Paul would be "the man".
However, unfortunately the powers that be would fall on their swords before they would EVER allow it.

It would be ANATHAMA for the lefties !

Your devotion to Mr. Trump is laudable...however, this thread was basically posted to involk inquiry and thought.

Kinda like discussing a rhetorical or philosopical question.

It was not meant to act as a catalyst for the "MUST DEFEND TRUMP OR DIE" mentality.

Here, maybe this will help you feel better:

Mike Pence might be formidable. I don't think he would win. But say he and POTUS had some irreconcilable split in ideology over, say, tariffs or Middle East policy. Pence could claim that would continue to carry the MAGA banner, but that Trump has become to reckless to leave in the White House for another 4 years.

Now on the off chance that Pence captured the GOP nomination, there is no guarantee that Trump won't run independent in the general... and win!

And, Cruz is still not eligible to be POTUS.

They aren't going to Primary Trump. No way. Even if GOPe still hates his guts, they wouldn't dare move forward with that unmitigated disaster. Especially with the war-chest that Trump has already raised.

"The latest fundraising disclosures bring the total haul for Trump’s reelection effort to more than $129 million, a record amount for a sitting president at this point in the election cycle."

And yeah, I used WAPO. I love it when haters are forced to admit Trump's winning! chuckle

He's not a naturalized U.S. citizen either, but he supposedly renounced his Canadian citizenship just before the primaries. That makes him "a man without a country."
