Robert Tracinski: ‘Anti-Establishment’ Presidential Candidate Wins Are Rare [INTERVIEW]
Tuesday on The Chad Hasty Show, Robert Tracinski, a senior writer at The Federalist, joined Chad to talk about the Republican race for the party's nomination for president.
Tracinski and Hasty discussed Tracinski's recent article about Rick Perry and the reasons he withdrew from the race. Also discussed were the rise of Donald Trump, and some of the other anti-establishment candidates who are doing well in the polls.
Speaking of which candidates are likely to be nominated without having a long history in politics, Tracinski said,
It's been very rare in history that a major party has come up with a candidate who hasn't held an elected office before. Usually the only ones who are exceptions to that are guys who were commanders who won wars.
