Previous Republican nominee

Donald Trump



The 2020 Republican Party presidential primaries and caucuses are a series of ongoing elections taking place in many U.S. states, the District of Columbia, and five U.S. territories. These events will elect most of the 2,550[lower-alpha 1] delegates to send to the Republican National Convention. Delegates to the national convention may otherwise be elected by the respective state party organizations. The delegates to the national convention will vote, by ballot, to select the Republican Party's nominee for president of the United States in the 2020 election, where the majority will be bound by the results of their respective state contests on the first ballot. The delegates also approve the party platform and vice-presidential nominee.

Incumbent president Donald Trump informally launched his bid for re-election on February 18, 2017. He launched his reelection campaign earlier in his presidency than any of his predecessors did. He was followed by former governor of Massachusetts Bill Weld, who announced his campaign on April 15, 2019, and former Illinois congressman Joe Walsh, who declared his candidacy on August 25, 2019. Former governor of South Carolina and U.S. representative Mark Sanford launched a primary challenge on September 8, 2019. In addition, businessman Rocky De La Fuente entered the race on May 16, 2019, but was not widely recognized as a major candidate.

In February 2019, the Republican National Committee voted to provide undivided support to Trump.[3][4] Several states have decided to cancel their primaries and caucuses.[5]

Candidates

Numerous pundits, journalists and politicians speculated that President Donald Trump might face a significant Republican primary challenger in 2020 because of his historic unpopularity in polls, his supposed association with allegations of Russian interference in the 2016 United States elections, his impeachment, and his support of unpopular policies.[6][7][8]

After re-enrolling as a Republican in January 2019,[9] former Republican governor of Massachusetts and 2016 Libertarian vice presidential nominee Bill Weld announced the formation of a 2020 presidential exploratory committee on February 15, 2019.[10] Weld announced his 2020 presidential candidacy on April 15, 2019.[11] Weld is considered a long-shot challenger because of Trump's popularity with Republicans; furthermore, Weld's views on abortion rights, gay marriage, marijuana legalization, and other issues conflict with conservative positions.[12]

Former U.S. representative Joe Walsh was a strong Trump supporter in 2016, but gradually became critical of the president. On August 25, 2019, Walsh officially declared his candidacy against Trump, calling Trump an "unfit con man".[13]

In 2017, there were rumors of a potential bipartisan ticket consisting of Republican Ohio governor and 2016 presidential candidate John Kasich and Democratic Colorado governor John Hickenlooper.[14] Kasich and Hickenlooper denied those rumors.[15][16] In November 2018, however, Kasich asserted that he was "very seriously" considering a White House bid in 2020.[17] In August 2019, he indicated that he did not see a path to win over Trump in a Republican primary at that time, but that his opinion might change in the future.[18]

Former South Carolina governor and former U.S. representative Mark Sanford officially declared his candidacy on September 8,[19] but suspended his campaign on November 12, 2019.[20]

Some prominent Trump critics within the GOP, including 2016 presidential candidate Carly Fiorina,[21] former U.S. senator Jeff Flake,[22] Maryland governor Larry Hogan,[23] and former Massachusetts governor and current U.S. senator Mitt Romney[24] have said they will not run for president in 2020.

Debates

The Republican National Committee (RNC) has made no plans to host any official primary debates. On May 3, 2018, the party voted to eliminate their debate committee, which, according to CNN, served as "a warning to would-be Republican rivals of President Donald Trump about his strong support among party loyalists".[112] Trump has declined any interest in participating in any primary debates, saying he was "not looking to give [opponents] any credibility".[113] Debates among the challengers have been scheduled without the RNC's involvement.

Business Insider hosted a debate on September 24 featuring two of Trump's primary challengers. It took place at the news outlet's headquarters in New York City, and was hosted by Business Insider's CEO Henry Blodgett, politics editor Anthony Fisher, and columnist Linette Lopez.[114] Walsh and Weld agreed to attend, but Sanford had a scheduling conflict and eventually declined.[115][116] An invitation was also sent to the president, but he also declined.[116]

Politicon held a debate between Sanford, Walsh, and Weld on October 26 at its 2019 convention in Nashville, Tennessee[117] and Forbes also held a debate between the three on October 28 at its Under 30 Summit in Detroit, Michigan.[118]

Both Walsh and Weld have taken part in a few Democratic forums.[119][120][121]

Cancellation of state caucuses or primaries

The Washington Examiner reported on December 19, 2018, that the South Carolina Republican Party had not ruled out forgoing a primary contest to protect Trump from any primary challengers. Party chairman Drew McKissick stated, "Considering the fact that the entire party supports the president, we'll end up doing what's in the president's best interest."[122] On January 24, another Washington Examiner report indicated that the Kansas Republican Party was "likely" to scrap its presidential caucus to "save resources".[123]

In August 2019, the Associated Press reported that the Nevada Republican Party was also contemplating canceling their caucuses, with the state party spokesman, Keith Schipper, saying it "isn't about any kind of conspiracy theory about protecting the president ... He's going to be the nominee ... This is about protecting resources to make sure that the president wins in Nevada and that Republicans up and down the ballot win in 2020."[124]

On September 6, both of Trump's main challengers at the time, Bill Weld and Joe Walsh, criticized these cancellations as undemocratic.[125] The Trump campaign and GOP officials cited the fact that Republicans canceled several state primaries when George H.W. Bush and George W. Bush sought a second term in 1992 and 2004, respectively; and Democrats scrapped some of their primaries when Bill Clinton and Barack Obama were seeking reelection in 1996 and 2012, respectively.[126][127] Weld and Walsh were joined by Mark Sanford in a joint op-ed in The Washington Post on September 13, 2019 which criticized the party for cancelling those primaries.[128]

Kansas,[129] Nevada and South Carolina's state committees officially voted on September 7, 2019, to cancel their caucus and primary.[5] The Arizona state Republican Party indicated two days later that it will not hold a primary.[130] These four were joined by the Alaska state Republican party on September 21, when its central committee announced they would not hold a presidential primary.[131]

Virginia Republicans decided to allocate delegates at the state convention.[132]

The Nevada State committee chairman said the committee would meet on February 23, 2020 and bind their delegates to Trump.[133]

The Hawaii GOP voted to cancel its primary and bind its 19 delegates to Trump on December 11.[134]

  2. 2.0 2.1 Because Trump was the only candidate to declare for its ballot by the deadline, the Hawaii Republican Party automatically awarded its national pledged delegates to him on December 11, 2019.[2]
  3. In bolded states and territories, the leading candidate won the support of an absolute majority of that state's delegation for the first ballot; according to Rule 40(b), eight such states are needed to be eligible.[29] In states and territories that are not bolded, the leading candidate won the support of a simple plurality of delegates.
  4. The soft count is the estimated number of presumed delegates, subject to change if candidates drop out of the race, leaving those delegates that were previously allocated to them "uncommitted".[30]
  5. The hard count is the number of the official allocated delegates.[30]
  6. Robert Ardini, President R. Boddie, Stephen B. Comley, Sr., Bob Ely, Larry Horn, Zoltan Istvan, Rick Kraft, Star Locke, Matthew Matern, Mary Maxwell, Eric Merrill, William N. Murphy, and Juan Payne
  7. 7.0 7.1 withdrawn from state primary
  8. 8.0 8.1 Robert Ardini, Zoltan Istvan, and Matthew Matern
  9. 9.0 9.1 Bob Ely, Zoltan Istvan, and Matthew Matern
  10. Robert Ardini, Bob Ely, and Matthew Matern
  11. 11.0 11.1 Bob Ely and Matthew Matern
  12. Mark Sanford
  13. John Schiess of Wisconsin filed for candidacy, but with only 10 signatures out of 3000 required, and was removed by the State Board of Elections.[225]
