The Quick Facts

  • This week, Republican leaders in 4 states: Nevada, South Carolina, Kansas, and Arizona, voted to cancel their primary elections in 2020, ensuring the states’ delegate votes will go to President Trump. 
  • Other states may soon follow suit, although Iowa and New Hampshire recently confirmed they will holding a primary election and caucus. 
  • Critics say the cancelling of primaries is undemocratic, as it will deny voters in these states the opportunity to potentially cast votes for any of Trump’s primary challengers, which include Bill Weld, Mark Sanford, and Joe Walsh.
