Republican Joe Walsh drops his bid to challenge Trump for the Republican presidential nomination. “The party is a cult,” he says on CNN. “I would rather have a socialist in the White House than a dictator,” Walsh adds, saying he’ll vote for the democratic nominee.
He’s challenged President Trump’s character since he even started his bid calling him a “con man” but he had made comments the left hated him for calling former President Obama a Muslim. But the left loves him now and the hypocrisy is cringeworthy.
The former Illinois congressman finally came to senses ending his delusional Republican primary challenge. The congressman abandoned his so-called convictions since financially he couldn’t do it, but yet this morning he made more headlines than he ever did as a candidate, maybe he should’ve had this strategy before he threw in the towel. The congressman is a defeated man this morning and it’s good to see, bitter much?
Walsh finished third in the Iowa Republican caucuses, which Trump overwhelmingly won on Monday as his impeachment trial was nearing its end.He clearly dod a terrible job and his message didn’t resonate. A one-term congressman, Walsh launched his 2020 bid in August with slim to no chance of defeating Trump, who has high approval ratings among Republicans.
The only thing Walsh was ever going get from a Trump circle was Kellyann Conway’s husband who advised and donated to the campaign of Walsh. Governor Bill Weld remains the only Republican candidate facing off against Trump for the nomination. Walsh only received 1% of votes in Iowa, while President Trump won 97% of the caucus vote.
