It's got an entrant. Potentially, don't think this is an official announcement yet. BTW, the RNC can make whatever nonsensical declarations it wants - can't stop him from being primaried (though they can withhold recognition or support).

Weld considering challenging Trump for Republican nomination
https://turnto10.com/politics/weld-cons ... nomination

WCVB-TV reported that Weld has taken leave from his law firm and that if he enters the race it would be as a Republican, setting up a primary challenge for President Donald Trump.

Former Gov. William Weld ran with Gary Johnson on the Libertarian ticket in 2016. They got 3.2% of the vote.

I may not be a Republican, but still, good for you Gov. Hogan. Your party needs to be more small-d democratic to its voters/members. Stop "anointing" Trump in a shield from primary challenges.

Hogan rips RNC for shielding Trump from primary challenge
The Maryland governor, weighing a White House bid, said he expects to visit New Hampshire in the next few months.

Republican Gov. Larry Hogan said Thursday he expects to make a springtime trip to New Hampshire as he weighs a 2020 challenge to Donald Trump — and accused the Republican National Committee of going to extraordinary lengths to shield the president from a potentially draining primary.

“Typically they try to be fair arbiters of a process and I’ve never seen anything like it and I’ve been involved in the Republican Party for most of my life. It’s unprecedented. And in my opinion it’s not the way we should be going about our politics,” Hogan, a popular two-term Maryland governor, said in an interview with POLITICO. “It’s very undemocratic and to say, ‘We’re in some cases not going to allow a debate, we may not have a primary…’”

“And the question is, what are they afraid of?” he added. “Because on the one hand you look at polls, 70 percent of Republicans support the president in a primary. Why are they so concerned? Why the puffing out the chest — ‘We’ve put together the greatest team ever assembled, we’re going to raise all this money early, we’re going to hire all these people early, we’re going to take over the RNC…’”

During its annual winter meeting earlier this year, the RNC passed a resolution giving the president its “undivided support” ahead of the 2020 election. Trump has also rolled out a 2020 campaign organization that incorporates the RNC and his campaign into a single entity, with the reelection campaign and committee merging their field and fundraising programs into a joint entity known as Trump Victory. Traditionally, a presidential reelection committee has worked side-by-side with the national party committee but not overtaken it.

The arrangement, Hogan suggested, stemmed from worry on the part of senior Republicans that the president could be vulnerable to a primary challenge.

Look, we could argue the DNC was unfairly non-impartial in 2016 to HRC. But imagine the outrage if they basically rolled up in combination with her campaign and said they would not allow any primary challenger to her?

Granted, she was not an incumbent, but still.
