Several members in the Republican party have begun strategizing for a possible campaign for the presidential elections in 2020. Many within the party believe Trump will not seek reelection due to his abysmal approval ratings and chaos within the West Wing. “They [Donors] see weakness in this president,” said Senator John McCain (R-AZ). A candidate in the 2016 election, Governor John Kasich, has refused to rule out a 2020 campaign.
Kasich has traveled to the battleground state of New Hampshire and plans to hold a series of policy forums in Ohio and around the country discussing healthcare legislation. The real decider of who runs will be the donors, specifically the Koch brother’s network, due to their financial prowess.
