Style and personality will be essential in Republican primaries: Mulvaney

“All participants in the Republican primary are Republicans by definition – most of their politics will be the same,” Mr Mulvaney told Sky News Australia anchor James Morrow.

“If Ron DeSantis can convince people that he is the best candidate, he has a better chance of becoming president than Donald Trump, then he has a chance.”
