Blitz Q #143: Who would Republicans put forward as their presidential candidate for 2020 if they could?

I know Dump is the candidate. He's the incumbent; you just don't derail the train (even if some believe otherwise) while the party you support is already in office.

With all the … Continue reading Blitz Q #143: Who would Republicans put forward as their presidential candidate for 2020 if they could?
