Jeb Bush Wants Republican to Challenge Trump

Newser - 03-15


(Newser) – President Trump should have to overcome both Democratic and Republican opponents if he wants to retake the presidency, according to Jeb Bush. In a CNN interview to air Saturday, the former Florida governor who faced Trump in the 2016 primary calls for a competitive round two in 2020 among Republicans. "I think someone should run just because Republicans ought to be given a choice," Bush tells David Axelrod of The Axe Files, per Mediaite. "It's hard to beat a sitting president, but to have a conversation about what it is to be a conservative, I think it's important."
