Is Vivek Ramaswamy Trump 2.0?
In 2016, Donald Trump faced the strongest Republican presidential field in decades.
Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio were brash young champions of the Tea Party that had redefined the GOP in the last two midterms.
Scott Walker was the paladin of the Reaganite right and the governor of a key Midwest battleground.
