As you will see in this video, Bill Weld stated with no hesitation or doubt that he’d run for Governor of New York even if he didn’t get the Republican nomination.
Q: I want to make sure that you are going to stick through to this to the end, no matter what threats you get from the Republican Party. And by the way, will you run even if you don’t get the Republican Party nomination?
Weld: Yes and yes.
Former Massachusetts Gov. Bill Weld dropped out of the race for governor of New York on Tuesday, averting a potentially bruising and expensive primary for the Republican nomination.
“I do think there’s a time to look beyond your aspirations for the bigger picture,” Weld said. “This is not a time for a contested primary.”
The move came days after the state GOP establishment threw its support to Weld’s rival, former state Assembly Minority Leader John Faso. If Weld had stayed in the race, he would have faced Faso in a primary in September.
Please pardon the Clintonism, but it depends on what the meaning of the word ‘yes’ is..
