How would I refute this sentence please?

Mike Smith should not be a presidential candidate.After all, he has never held office.

To refute means to prove wrong by argument or evidence.

Start with something like "Mike Smith should be a presidential candidate because..."

Then, finish it with some evidence for why he should be a presidential candidate.

The more logical approach would be -
Mike Smith's lack of political experience might be a detriment to his success as a presidential candidate.
