In an interview that will air on Saturday, former Florida Governor and failed presidential candidate Jeb Bush told David Axelrod of “The Axe Files” that someone from the GOP needs to primary President Trump.
“I think someone should run. Just because Republicans ought to be given a choice,” said Bush. He added that he thinks it will be hard to beat the President because “he has a strong, loyal base” and “it’s hard to beat a sitting president.”
Bush also said a conversation about what it means to be a conservative needs to happen.
“But to have a conversation about what it is to be a conservative I think is important. And our country needs to have competing ideologies that people — that are dynamic, that focus on the world we’re in and the world we’re moving towards rather than revert back to a nostalgic time.”
The topic came up when Axelrod asked Bush about Maryland Republican Gov. Larry Hogan who has been named as a potential primary opponent to the President.
