As some Democrats drop out, here are some possible Republican contenders in the 2020 presidential race

Democratic presidential candidates are not the only ones competing to be on the top job ballot in 2020.

Joe Walsh, a one-term Tea party-backed Republican Congressman from Illinois, turned conservative radio host, said on Thursday that he is considering running against President donald trump in the republican primary.

The 57-year-old Walsh has called Trump a liar and a bully who is unfit for office.

But it will be an uphill battle for Walsh. The president has the power of incumbency, and Trump has an 80 percent job performance approval rating among Republicans.

“Again 20 percent of Republicans do not support Donald Trump, so if there’s another candidate out there who can make their voices and their concerns heard then I think it’s very appropriate for them to go ahead and run,” says Joshua Ang Price.

Price, an election commissioner in Arkansas, the state that Trump won with almost 61 percent of the vote in 2016, thinks Republicans in his state might welcome an option.

But Walsh will not be the lone Trump challenger. Former Massachusetts governor Bill Weld announced his White House bid in April. Weld ran as Gary Johnson’s running mate on the Libertarian party ticket in 2016.

Meanwhile, the Democratic field slightly reduced to 21, with 3 candidates dropping out.

On Friday, Massachusetts congressman Seth Moulton announced that he is ending his presidential campaign. He will instead run for re-election.

On Wednesday, Washington governor Jay Inslee dropped out and announced on Thursday that he will run again as governor.

“We had a great grassroots effort we broke a little late after the second debate when we then got 42,000 more donors. So we got our momentum a little late but now I’m now really looking forward to this next four years and people give me this high honor.”

Last week, former Colorado governor John Hickenlooper left the Democratic race. He is now running for Senate.
