[Ed. – Interesting, although I’m not sure how resonant this kind of theoretical thinking is right now. It’s amazing the extent to which the anti-Kavanaugh assault is galvanizing people who have long thought of themselves as centrists and moderates. Romney just isn’t who they’re looking for now.]
Bannon said on “Real Time with Bill Maher” on Friday night that the race could involve a three-way battle between President Trump, a left-leaning senator such as Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) and a centrist candidate such as former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg or Utah Senate candidate Mitt Romney (R).
“You’re gonna have Trump on the right, a politician — maybe a Kamala Harris or somebody on the left — and I think you’ll have a Bloomberg or a Romney or somebody in the center,” Bannon said on the HBO show.
“I think it will be a three-way race,” the Trump ally added.
