2020 Republican Party presidential primaries
2,552[a] delegate votes (2,442 pledged and 110 unpledged) to the Republican National Convention
1,276 delegates votes needed to win
First place by first-instance vote
The 2020 Republican Party presidential primaries and caucuses were a series of elections which took place in many U.S. states, the District of Columbia, and five U.S. territories. These events elected most of the 2,550 delegates to send to the Republican National Convention. This election selected the Republican Party's nominee for president of the United States in the 2020 election.
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, former Illinois congressman Joe Walsh, who declared his candidacy on August 25, 2019.
