Conservative firebrand former Illinois Rep. Joe Walsh announced Sunday with ABC News Chief Anchor George Stephanopoulos on ABC's "This Week" that he's launching a long-shot Republican presidential primary challenge against President Donald Trump.
Walsh is scheduled to appear on the ABC politics news show "This Week With George Stephanopoulos", Sunday morning.
Already in the race is former Massachusetts Gov. Bill Weld.
Walsh regularly courted controversy during his short tenure in Congress and continues to make waves as a conservative radio host.
Still, Walsh said he thinks many Republicans are privately opposed to Trump but are afraid to come forward. A Reuters/Ipsos poll conducted August 19-20 showed 87% of Republicans approve of his performance in office. While Walsh stands nearly zero chance in a primary against Trump, who remains hugely popular among Republicans, the Times said he hopes to appeal to conservatives like himself who have soured on Trump.
"I helped create Trump".
Andrew Luck: Indianapolis Colts quarterback retires at 29
After the game was over Luck was relentlessly booed by Colts fans. "It's a shoulder, and an ankle, and this, and this", Luck said. He was still a solid franchise quarterback for the Colts and did a lot to keep them competitive in the post-Manning era.

Cricket works that way. "We've got to keep working with these players because these are the best players we have". Root, in on a pair, was 41 not out and Denly 30 not out with their third-wicket stand so far worth 75 runs.
Fernando Torres: Ex-Liverpool and Chelsea striker's career ends in heavy defeat
In 2011, he was signed by Chelsea for a then British record transfer fee of £50m. Torres was part of the Spanish national team from 2003-2014.
Walsh said his attitude contrasted with what he said was Trump's refusal to apologize for anything.
The road ahead for any Republican primary challenger will certainly be hard. I'm opening up my life to tweets and attacks.
"They want him to lose in November", Walsh said.
He lost his 2012 reelection bid by more than 20,000 votes to Democrat Tammy Duckworth, who was elected to the U.S. Senate four years later.
Both challengers will have an uphill climb, because no sitting president who has campaigned for another term has failed to secure it in modern history.
However, last week he wrote a New York Times op-ed saying, "In Mr. Trump, I see the worst and ugliest iteration of views I expressed for the better part of a decade". "I regret that. And I'm sorry for that".
