Adam Hilton, assistant professor of politics at Mount Holyoke College, puts Bill Weld’s audacious presidential bid in context.
Bill Weld, the 74-year-old former governor of Massachusetts, has thrown his hat into the ring for the Presidential race, the only Republican so far who dares to mount a primary challenge against President Trump.
Weld is extensively profiled in the Washington Post Magazine about his chances, and Adam Hilton, assistant professor of politics, was quoted on how groundbreaking this is:
“Weld’s bid to dump Trump invents a new political style,” Hilton said. “A moderate insurgency against an extremist establishment.”
