Mark Sanford has faced challenges before. The former South Carolina congressman lost a GOP primary after Trump urged voters to reject him. 

He previously resigned as the Palmetto State's governor after an extramarital affair. 

Now, Sanford is considering a run for president in 2020.

Per The Post and Courier:
 

Sanford, in an exclusive interview Tuesday with The Post and Courier, confirmed he will take the next month to formulate whether he will mount a potential run against Trump as a way of pushing a national debate about America's mounting debt, deficit and government spending.

He would run as a Republican.

"Sometimes in life you've got to say what you've got to say, whether there's an audience or not for that message," Sanford said. "I feel convicted."

If he does get in the race, Sanford faces mammoth odds of getting any traction within the Republican Party.
