But Donald Trump’s name WAS there….
But mainly, they took aim at the president.
Former Illinois congressman Joe Walsh and former Massachusetts Gov. Bill Weld participated in the first GOP primary debate ahead of the 2020 presidential elections. The debate was hosted by Business Insider at its New York City headquarters.
Trump and another of his GOP challengers, former South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford, both declined to attend the debate, which was not sanctioned by the national Republican Party.
