You may not have known this, but there are challengers to President Donald Trump in the race for the Republican nomination.
One such candidate, South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford, has now officially dropped out of the race, according to Breitbart.
Time to bow out
When Sanford made his withdrawal announcement, he stated that his concerns were never addressed at all in this race. He did not want to waste more time and money because he believes the key issues facing the country will never receive the attention they deserve.
“From day one, I was fully aware of how hard it would be to elevate these issues with a sitting president of my own party ignoring them,” Sanford said.
He went on: “Impeachment noise has moved what was hard to herculean as nearly everything in Republican party politics is currently viewed through the prism of impeachment.”
Believe it or not, there are still two other candidates attempting to take the nomination away from Trump.
Former Illinois Rep. Joe Walsh, who is now a Twitter and radio personality, and former Massachusetts Gov. Bill Weld have thrown their hats into the ring as well.
Most Americans have no idea Trump even has any competition, so we can expect both of these men to drop out sooner rather than later.
All hinges on impeachment
Trump’s biggest threats in this presidential race are not these outlier candidates, but rather, the impeachment process. From what we have seen in the hearing thus far, Democrats have little evidence of wrongdoing to offer.
All we have heard from the “star” witness so far is opinion, conjecture, and secondhand information. If this is all the Democrats can bring to bear, the re-election of Donald Trump is all but certain.
The one thing Americans have to do during these hearings is watch and then come to their own conclusions.
The media is already spinning this in favor of Democrats, but the fact of the matter is: there still has not been conclusive proof of any impeachable offense. Only time will tell whether the Dems come up with anything — or come up short.
