Not a fan of our former governor, but on a scale of 1-10 where 45 is at 0, Weld might earn a 5.

I didn't mean to imply that I was a fan - I'm thrilled that repubs now have someone else to vote for.

Weld ran as the Libertarian VP last time. He and Gary Johnson received twice as many votes (Mostly Republican) as the Green Party. For any other candidate, that kind of Republican split would have sealed it the Democrat.

Indeed, I'd contend that the 45th President is hoping to seal his 2020 re-election by capturing the libertarian votes he didn't get in 2016. Given his aggressive deregulatory actions and "tax cuts" he may succeed. (I hate to say it but while I'm not personally happy about the loss of SALT deductions in my federal 1040, filing for me was simpler this time around, although it also took several thousand more out of my pocket than in previous years.)

Good news. Hopefully he siphons off enough votes to impede the orange monster from being sworn in again.

“In politics, a sacrificial lamb candidate is a candidate chosen to contest an election despite the fact that he or she has little chance of victory. The political party thus appoints the person as a sort of "sacrifice" to the stronger opponent.”
