After teasing us for a little bit it looks like former congressman Joe Walsh is absolutely going to run against el Presidente Trumpo for the Republican primary.
BREAKING: "I'm going to run for president," former Republican Tea Party congressman Joe Walsh announces on @ThisweekABC.— This Week (@ThisWeekABC) August 25, 2019

It is important to note that this is part of Bill Kristol’s diabolical plan to replace Trump, but he doesn’t think there’s a way to actually defeat him in the primary. He has literally said that the only reason to challenge Trump is to weaken him so that a Democrat can finish him off.
"I'm running because he's unfit, somebody needs to step up and there needs to be an alternative.

So even though Walsh is the longest of longshots to win the primary, even if he loses, he could do the damage needed to hurt Trump for the final battle.
