2. I want as many GOP challengers as we can get

 

1) It will PISS OFF Trump to no end

2) It will give the press something to cover that would be negative for Trump

3) It will limit nefarious cross-over votes from Republicans trying to muck with our primaries.

4. I wish he would change his mind and run as an independent

this way he can split off some of the repug votes that would help us Dems. I want him to Stein & Nader the GOP.

9. He has 0 chance

The Trump run RNC is rigging the primary process to allow early states to skip primaries/caucuses to just endorse Trump.

11. At least Weld will give Trump a target during the primaries

...for all his childish taunts and insults. Otherwise, Trump would sail right through the primary schedule with nothing better to do than take pot shots at the Dem candidates.
