The man whose name appeared on the Libertarian Party ticket next to former New Mexico Gov. Gary Johnson during the 2016 election said Monday he will challenge President Donald J. Trump in the 2020 primary.
“Ours is a nation built on courage, resilience, and independence. In these times of great political strife, when both major parties are entrenched in their ‘win at all cost’ battles, the voices of the American people are being ignored and our nation is suffering,” Bill Weld said in a statement.
Johnson and Weld got crushed in 2016. The pair did not even poll well enough to be allowed on national debate stages, and in an election during which Libertarians were expected to make headway, managed only 3.27 percent of the vote, or just over 4 million total votes.
“It is time for patriotic men and women across our great nation to stand and plant a flag. It is time to return to the principles of Lincoln — equality, dignity, and opportunity for all,” Weld’s statement continued. “There is no greater cause on earth than to preserve what truly makes America great. I am ready to lead that fight.”
CNN’s Manu Raju said that Weld plans to focus especially on the state of New Hampshire during the primary.
Weld was a Republican governor of Massachusetts who advocated for gun control in the 1990’s. He was also known for his gubernatorial administration’s push for the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to implement an electric car mandate. He also endorsed Barack Obama for president in 2008.
He only rejoined the Republican Party again in February after his brief stint of Libertarianism.
From Republican, to endorsing a Democrat, to Libertarian, and back again, Weld is poised to add another chapter to his bizarre political career in 2020.

Arizona Legislature to Hold Public Hearings on Matters of Election Integrity, “Stop the Steal” Rally Being Held Saturday
The hearing will be held on November 30th.
The Arizona legislature will hold a hearing on election improprieties and the integrity of the state’s 2020 election on Monday. Members of the Arizona Senate and House of Representatives will participate on the public event.
Representative Mark Finchem of Legislative District will chair the hearing.
“Since shortly before the 2020 election a number of my colleagues and I have been examining potential fraud pathways and illegal actions through which our 2020 election could become tainted. My worst fears have come to light in the process, and so far the evidence has been blocked from an official public forum,” Rep. Finchem said. “A few weeks ago I requested approval for the House Federal Relations Committee to hold a hearing on the integrity of the Arizona 2020 election. That hearing has not yet been approved by House leadership, and time is of the essence to show proof that our election has been compromised.”
Finchem cited sworn affidavits attesting to irregularities in Arizona’s election, voter fraud, and poor management on the part of (now outgoing) Maricopa County Recorder Adrian Fontes.
“After a review of the statistical anomalies, and there are to numbers to count, affidavits of improper actions, and community outrage that has grown out of what appears to voters to be an attempt to throw the election through a number of fraudulent efforts, we decided as a Members of the Legislature, and not as members of any specific committee, that we should move forward with a public hearing.”
Trump campaign attorneys Rudy Giuliani and Jenna Ellis are expected to attend the hearing. Joe Biden appears to have won the state of Arizona by just over 10,000 votes.

State legislators have an imperative to remedy and rectify any election issues stemming from governmental improprieties, and can potentially appoint electors to the electoral college of their own volition.
A massive “Stop the Steal” rally is being held at the Arizona Legislature on Saturday at noon, with speakers including conservative commentator Nicholas J. Fuentes and Infowars host Alex Jones.
