    Weld: I'd Vote for Biden 'In a Heartbeat' Against Trump

    One of President Donald Trump's Republican challengers says he'd vote for Joe Biden "in a heartbeat" against Trump in the 2020 general election.

    "Could I vote for a Democrat? Hell yes. If it's Trump against Joe Biden, I'm with Biden in a heartbeat," former Massachusetts Gov. Bill Weld said.

    Weld's comments came during an appearance at the CITIZEN by CNN conference. He was joined onstage by former South Carolina governor and congressman Mark Sanford and former Illinois congressman Joe Walsh. They are also seeking the Republican presidential nomination against Trump.

    Weld says he'd never support Trump "for any office under any circumstances" but could "very well" support a third-party candidate.

    If the matchup were Trump against Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren, Weld said, "I suppose I'd rather have her."
