You mean in the DNC or the government? Trust me there are plenty of corrupt corporatists in both. Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Shumer for 2. The DNC tried to block new progressives with their recent policy remember. And the US government recently appointed a war criminal on Elliot Abrams to handle Venezuela plus it has tools like Barr and Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump and Kelly Anne Conway and Betsie Devos among others. Trust me there are many shady people in power in the DNC, GOP and the government. The fight of the people Vs the corporatists is just beginning.

At least some are owning up their mistake of giving all their support to Clinton and screwing Sanders over, and vowing to not do that again:

However, this thread is for the republican primaries, so I think we better drop the subject here and move over to the one of the democratic primaries for that.

Sure, but what is there to discuss here man? No major opponent to Trump. It's basically his primary.

Governor Larry Hogan of Maryland has officially decided not to run.  He was one of the potential candidates to challenge Donald Trump.  The only other likely candidates to announce their campaigns now are former Tennessee Senator Bob Corker and former Ohio Governor John Kasich.

On a personal note, Kasich was by far my favorite Republican candidate during the last election and I'd be thrilled if he ran again.

UPDATE: Illinois state representative Joe Walsh has announced his candidacy for the Republican Party.

Massimus - "Trump already has democrat support."

Several states, including Nevada, South Carolina, Arizona and Kansas, are all contemplating or moving forward with plans to cancel their primaries/caucuses despite the fact that two official challengers for the Republican nomination exist. These states are claiming it is simply to save costs given the long shot potential of the two challengers and they are not without precedent. Many states in the past for both parties have canceled their primaries/caucuses if an incumbent president is highly liked by the party and the challengers pose little threat.

But as to be expected, Walsh and Weld are very unhappy and are challenging them to keep their primaries/caucuses. But just like their challenge of the president himself, they will almost certainly lose these too.

Even if they would lose I feel like the GOP is trying yo avoided a Bush/Carter/Ford situation. Low approval president + Hard primary = Lost general. The GOP is actively trying to make the primary season easy for Trump so he's not hurt in the general.

I don't doubt that at all.  I'm certain both parties do that for well liked incumbents.  Because any flaws or chinks in the armor exposed during the primaries will assuredly be reused during the general debates and election.

It will be interesting to see those in the FoxBreitbartsphere argue that the GOP cancelling the primaries is awesome while what the Democrats did with Hillary is evil and an example of they ard against the will of the people.

Mark Sanford has been added.

I really didn't expect anyone to step up against Trump...much less 3 candidates.  Sadly, the one I wanted to challenge him is still sitting in the 'expressed interest but nothing formal announced yet' section.
