GOP presidential challenger Bill Weld to visit Salisbury

Bill Weld, the first Republican to announce he will challenge President Donald Trump in the 2020 primary election, will speak at Salisbury University at 1 p.m., June 4, in Holloway Hall.

The event will be sponsored by SU’s Institute for Public Affairs and Civic Engagement, the Greater Salisbury Committee and the Salisbury Area Chamber of Commerce.

The three organizations are bringing presidential hopefuls to the Eastern Shore through the series “Visits With The U.S. Presidential Candidates,” during which guests will answer questions from a moderator and from those in the audience.

Weld, governor of Massachusetts from 1991 to 1997, ran for president on the Libertarian ticket in 2016.

A native of New York, he is a member of the U.S. Council on Foreign Relations and an associate member of the InterAction Council of Former Heads of State and Government. He is a partner at the Boston law firm Mintz, Levin, Cohn, Ferris, Glovsky and Popeo.
