In conversation with Larry Donnelly, leading Republican political consultant John Weaver will discuss his involvement in a number of GOP presidential campaigns, including those of Arizona Senator John McCain and Ohio Governor John Kasich. Weaver will also consider the future of his party in the Trump era in both the shorter and longer terms.
In the short term, it looks likely that Republicans will lose congressional seats in November’s mid-term elections. In the longer term, first, there is the question of whether President Trump may be vulnerable to a primary challenge in 2020? And then, given that he remains extremely popular with grass roots American conservatives despite a tumultuous presidency, what does the future hold for the Republican Party? John Weaver has spoken and written forthrightly on all of these complex matters.
