Following night two of debates, Chairwoman McDaniel released the following statement, “Tonight’s debate was more of the same from Democrats: a broken record of radical policies,”. “The Democrat Party’s agenda means taxing more of our hard-earned money to give the government control of nearly every aspect of our lives. Democrats support tax hikes on the middle class and taxpayer-funded health care for illegal immigrants. Their policies are extreme and out of touch with the realities facing everyday Americans. Meanwhile, President Trump’s pro-growth policies are working, and he will continue to deliver for the American people when voters re-elect him in 2020.”
Bill Weld, 68th Governor of Massachusetts, is the only other Republican who has announced they are are running against Donald Trump in the 2020 election.
