COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — Republicans in several states are set to decide whether they’ll cancel plans to hold presidential preference selections before the 2020 election. It wouldn’t be unusual move by the party of the White House incumbent seeking a second term.
In meetings Saturday, Republican parties in South Carolina, Kansas and Nevada are expected to debate canceling primaries, caucuses or other voting. Arizona is expected to make a decision later in the month.
In years past, both Republicans and Democrats have scrapped state nominating contests when an incumbent president from their party ran for a second term.
