BREAKING: Arizona Cancels 2020 Republican Presidential Primary, Joining Several Other States

The Arizona Republican Party has reportedly opted out of their 2020 presidential primary, joining several other states.

The decisions come as President Trump faces long-shot challenges from former Rep. Joe Walsh, former Massachusetts Gov. Bill Weld and former Rep. Mark Sanford. The state joins Kansas and South Carolina in cancelling their primaries. Nevada is expected to follow suit.

The state has had other instances of primary cancelling, including when the Arizona Democratic Party did not have primaries in 2012 and 1996, when former Presidents Obama and Clinton, respectively, were running for reelection.
