Prior to the official announcement, Trump took aim at Sanford, foreshadowing the attacks to come by branding the former governor and congressman "Mr".

Mark Sanford found a potentially unlikely ally in his corner as he works to defeat President Donald Trump in 2020. "Your Sunday punch against Trump. I don't own what I don't own", adding that "at the end of the day, the American way is competition. and that should be the case for the Republican Party as well".

Primary challenges to incumbents are rarely successful, and Pres.

Democratic consultant Bill Busa says it's a sign of how energized Democratic voters are.

The Nevada Republican Party was expected to hold a vote on possibly changing its rules to allow a bypass of its presidential nominating caucuses in 2020 and endorse Pres. Trump outright.

A spokesman for the South Carolina Republican Party, Joe Jackson, confirmed that the party had voted against holding a presidential primary next year.

The Trump campaign did not respond to numerous requests for comment, but has tried to downplay and distance itself from the state party moves.

"I'm going to give out my financial condition", he told White House reporters.

Trump has bashed his challengers on Twitter as "Three Stooges", pointing to their weaknesses and boasting about his support within the Republican Party - "94% approval", he claimed.

"Why?" Wallace asked about his decision to run.

Wilson was outspoken in his conviction that the Bush administration's claims of weapons of mass destruction in Iraq were false. Libby was convicted of obstruction of justice and perjury in relation to that leak, and while George W.

"I am here to tell you now that I am going to get in", Mr Sanford said in an interview on Fox News Sunday. "It's wrong, the RNC should be ashamed of itself, and I think it does show that Trump is afraid of a serious primary challenge because he knows his support is very soft".

The vice president's speech - which was full of details - differed from a campaign speech given by the president's son, Donald Trump Jr., in Union County last month.

That is remarkable, given the president's current popularity within the party. Does - do any of these three pose a real threat to President Trump? But there is another goal, a secondary goal, which is to weaken the president headed into the general election.

Democrats, meanwhile, hope a win in the traditionally Republican suburbs here will not only help protect their majority, but energize the party heading into next year's presidential election.

While the president's campaign team will surely grind along, Mr Trump may find it hard to resist mixing it up with his intra-party opponents - even if denying them attention is the strategically better move. On the Republican side, spending is up well above President Obama.

But if 2020 is a close contest, even small cracks in the foundation could prove decisive.

"This debate is much bigger than SC", he said. He was re-elected in the 2006 SC gubernatorial election, and consequently served as Governor of SC from 2003 until 2011. He then returned to the House in 2013. "It's vitally important to have an honest conversation about what it means to be a Republican in the era of Trump; our debate will be a valuable part of that discussion".

That stance cost him the Republican primary when his seat was up for re-election past year. The president has appointed his eldest daughter, Ivanka Trump, and son-in-law, Jared Kushner, as two of his senior advisers, even though neither had prior political experience.

Fiorina has been mostly silent about Trump since he took office in 2017.
