Arizona GOP cancels 2020 presidential primary

by CBS News  |  Published on September 11, 2019

Arizona Republicans told state election officials Monday they’re scrapping their 2020 primary, joining GOP leaders in three other states that are forgoing a presidential nominating contest as President Trump seeks re-election.

Longshot candidates challenging Mr. Trump for the Republican nomination have objected to the moves in Nevada, South Carolina and Kansas to skip GOP primaries or caucuses next year.

“Arizona Republicans are fired up to re-elect President Trump to a second term and will continue to work together to keep America_and Arizona_great,” State GOP Chairman Kelli Ward said in a statement last week.

Challengers to Mr. Trump have emerged, including former South Carolina Governor and Representative Mark Sanford, former Massachusetts Governor Bill Weld and Joe Walsh, a former Illinois congressman.
