Vice Presidential candidate Bill Weld. Bill says he’s become a Republican again. But Republicans blocked Weld’s nomination for U.S. Ambassador to Mexico in 1997, and I doubt they’re going to let him back across the border now to be nominated for president. Then there’s former Governor of South Carolina Mark Sanford. As governor, he was mostly notable for disappearing for several days in 2009 – claiming to have been hiking the Appalachian Trail while actually in Argentina with his mistress...

Loved him in the Eagles! Got my vote! Huh?... It’s not that Joe Walsh? It’s the former one-term Illinois Republican congressman and conservative radio talk show host? Oh. Can he play a cover version of “Life’s Been Good To Me So Far”? Another opponent is former Governor of Massachusetts and 2016 Libertarian Party
