Former Massachusetts Gov Bill Weld, the only Republican scheduled to take a turn on the Des Moines Register Soapbox at the Iowa State Fair, invoked Sunday the names of Republicans from the past as he told the crowd his reason for opposing President Trump in 2020.
I’m not running because I think I’m the only person who can make a difference, I’m running because I’m troubled by the situation in our country and I think we’re at somewhat of an inflection point and I think the most urgent duty facing the next president is to seek to unify the country as opposed to dividing it.

And that’s not what the current administration is doing.
