Joe Walsh plans Republican primary challenge to Trump: report

1 min read

Conservative talk-radio host and former Illinois congressman Joe Walsh is expected to challenge President Donald Trump the the Republican primary, the New York Times reported late Wednesday. The Times said a formal announcement may come as soon as this weekend. While Walsh stands almost zero chance in a primary against Trump, who remains hugely popular among Republicans, the Times said he hopes to appeal to conservatives like himself who have soured on Trump. Walsh tweeted in 2016: “On November 8th, I’m voting for Trump. On November 9th, if Trump loses, I’m grabbing my musket. You in?” Walsh has since become an outspoken Trump critic, and has called him “a traitor” and a “racial arsonist.”
