The 2020 Democratic Party presidential primaries and caucuses will be a series of electoral contests organized by the Democratic Party to select the approximately 3,768 pledged delegates to the Democratic National Convention , who by pledged votes shall elect the Democratic nominee for President of the United States in the 2020 U.S. presidential election.[1] The elections are scheduled to take place from February to June 2020, within all fifty U.S. states, the District of Columbia, and five U.S. territories, and Democrats Abroad.

Twenty five major candidates have entered the race for the 2020 Democratic Party presidential nomination, of which one candidate (Richard Ojeda) has opted to withdraw so far. This is the largest presidential primary field for any political party in American history, exceeding the field of 17 major candidates that sought the Republican presidential nomination in 2016.[2]

Background[edit]

After Hillary Clinton's loss in the previous election, many felt the Democratic Party lacked a clear leader.[3] There remained divisions in the party following the 2016 primaries which pitted Clinton against Bernie Sanders.[4][5] Between the 2016 election and the 2018 midterm elections, Senate Democrats have generally shifted to the political left in relation to college tuition, healthcare, and immigration.[6][7]

Soon after the 2016 general election, the division between Clinton and Sanders supporters was highlighted in the 2017 Democratic National Committee chairmanship election between Tom Perez and Keith Ellison.[8] Perez was narrowly elected Chairman and subsequently appointed Ellison as the Deputy Chair, a largely ceremonial role.[6][7] Several candidates began releasing serious policy proposals early in 2019 resulting in the "invisible primary" being more visible than in previous elections.[citation needed] The number of viable candidates running for the presidency is the largest in history.[9]

Reforms since 2016[edit]

On August 25, 2018, the Democratic National Committee (DNC) members passed reforms to the Democratic Party's primary process in order to increase participation[10] and ensure transparency.[11] State parties are encouraged to use a government-run primary whenever available and increase the accessibility of their primary through same-day or automatic registration and same-day party switching. Caucuses are required to have absentee voting, or to otherwise allow those who cannot participate in person to be included.[10]

The new reforms also regulate how the Democratic National Convention shall handle the outcome of primaries and caucuses for three potential scenarios:[1][12]

  1. If a single candidate wins at least 2,267 pledged delegates: Superdelegates will be allowed to vote at first ballot, as their influence can not overturn the majority of pledged delegates.
  2. If a single candidate wins 1,885-2,266 pledged delegates: Superdelegates will be barred from voting at first ballot, which solely will be decided by the will of pledged delegates.
  3. If no candidate will win more than 1,884 pledged delegates: This will result in a contested convention, where superdelegates are barred from voting at the first formal ballot, but regain their right to vote for their preferred presidential nominee for all subsequent ballots needed until the delegates reach a majority.

The reforms mandate that superdelegates refrain from voting on the first presidential nominating ballot, unless a candidate via the outcome of primaries and caucuses already has gained enough votes (more than 50% of all delegate votes) among only the elected pledged delegates. The prohibition for superdelegates to vote at the first ballot for the last two mentioned scenarios, does not preclude superdelegates from publicly endorsing a candidate of their choosing before the convention.[12]

In a contested convention where no majority of minimum 1,885 pledged delegate votes is found for a single candidate in the first ballot, all superdelegates will then regain their right to vote on any subsequent ballot necessary in order for a presidential candidate to be nominated (raising the majority needed for such to 2,267 votes).[1][12]

Candidates[edit]

Declared candidates[edit]

In addition to having filed with the Federal Election Commission to run for president in the Democratic Party primary in 2020 and having confirmed this by an official campaign announcement (while still campaigning actively as of today), the 24 major candidates have either: (a) held public office; (b) been included in a minimum of five independent national polls; or (c) received substantial media coverage.[13][14][15][16][17][18]

Debates[edit]

Timeline[edit]

Background[edit]

In the weeks following the election of Donald Trump in the 2016 election, media speculation regarding potential candidates for the 2020 Democratic Party presidential primaries began to circulate. Speculation centered on the prospects of the "hell-no caucus", six senators who went on to vote against the majority of Trump's nominees. According to Politico, the members of the "hell-no caucus" were Cory Booker, Kamala Harris, Kirsten Gillibrand, Bernie Sanders, Jeff Merkley and Elizabeth Warren.[173][174] Other speculation centred on then-Vice-President Joe Biden, making a third presidential bid following failed attempts in 1988 and 2008. Biden had previously served as U.S. Senator from Delaware (1973-2009).[175]

On July 28, 2017, U.S. Representative John Delaney became the first major Democrat to announce their candidacy in an op-ed in The Washington Post.[35] On November 6, 2017, tech entrepreneur Andrew Yang became the second major Democrat to announce their candidacy.[176] In August 2018, Democratic Party officials and television networks begin discussions as to the nature and scheduling of the following year's debates and the nomination process.[177] In December 2018, the Democratic National Committee (DNC) announced the preliminary schedule for 12 official DNC-sanctioned debates, set to begin in June 2019, with six debates in 2019 and the remaining six during the first four months of 2020. Following these announcements, there was a general consensus that debates would have a greater, influential role in the primaries.

  • February 11: New Hampshire primary
  • February 22: Nevada caucus
  • February 29: South Carolina primary
  • March 3: Super Tuesday (Alabama, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Massachusetts, Minnesota, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Vermont, and Virginia primaries); Democrats Abroad primary for expatriates features a March 3–10 voting period.
  • March 7: Louisiana primary (bill awaiting governor's signature will move it to April 4)[214][215]
  • March 10: Idaho, Michigan, Mississippi, Missouri, Ohio, and Washington primaries; North Dakota firehouse caucus (identical to a party-run primary)

  • June 2: Montana, New Jersey, New Mexico, and South Dakota primaries
  • June 7: Puerto Rico primary
    (Governor Ricardo Rosselló tabled a bill that would move it to March 29,[219] which is expected to be approved by the legislative assembly during the summer of 2019,[220][221] and earlier the Puerto Rico Democratic Party signalled they would revise their adopted Delegate Selection Plan accordingly.[222] Two competing bills likewise propose a move to March 29, but compared to the governor's bill they also entail a comprehensive reform of the entire election law.[223][224])
  • June 16: District of Columbia primary (bill proposing a move to June 2 has been tabled)[225][226][227]

As of June 2019, primaries and caucuses for the following states/territories are not yet scheduled:[213]

  • American Samoa caucus (previously held on March 1, 2016)
  • Maine caucus/primary (previously held on March 6, 2016): A new law enacted three years ago, introduced a state-run primary for any Tuesday in March (chosen by the Secretary of State),[228] but this law expired in December 2018.[229] In the absence of new legislation, the state party anticipates holding a caucus on March 8, 2020.[230] Two competing bills have been tabled to replace the previously held party-run caucus with a state-run primary, scheduled for either any date in March (chosen by the secretary of state)[231] or March 3 (Super Tuesday).[232] The Super Tuesday primary bill was voted against by Republicans due to budget concerns,[233] but was approved by both chambers of the Maine legislature,[234] and now awaits approval of the governor to become a law.[235] The other competing bill had its alternative date proposal nixed by an amendment, but all its provisions introducing the opt-in for state parties to choose a "ranked-choice voting system" for their primary was approved by both chambers of the Maine Legislature,[236] and this will now also become law subject to the governor's approval.[235]
  • Northern Mariana Islands caucus (previously held on March 12, 2016)
  • Wyoming caucus/primary (previously held on April 9, 2016): The state party initially via its draft plan proposed a party-run caucus for March 2020,[237][238] then shortly considered moving it to April 18,[239] but now currently consider whether to replace it with a party-run primary (as a government-run primary is not an option in the state). The final decision setting the format and date will be communicated via an updated plan in the summer of 2019.[240]
  • New York primary (previously held on April 19, 2016): The primary is currently scheduled for a default February 4 date only for procedural reasons, as setting the official date awaits the legislature's pass of a bill to amend the existing election law. The Democratic draft delegate selection plan proposed April 28 as the actual date for the primary,[241][242] and a month later this was adopted as the official plan of the state party.[243] Both chambers of the New York State Legislature also approved the plan,[244][245] which now only awaits approval of the governor to become a law.[246]
  • Guam caucus (previously held on May 7, 2016)
  • United States Virgin Islands caucus (previously held on June 4, 2016)

The 57 states/district/territories that will decide the Democratic nominee currently plan to hold 49 primaries and 6 caucuses (Iowa, Nevada and four territories), while two states (Wyoming and Maine) have not yet decided their election format.[213] The number of states holding caucuses has significantly dwindled from the 2016 election where 37 held a primary and 14 held a caucus.[240]

National convention[edit]

The 2020 Democratic National Convention is scheduled to take place in Milwaukee, Wisconsin on July 13–16, 2020.[247][248][249]

In addition to Milwaukee, the DNC also considered bids from three other cities: Houston, Texas;[250] Miami Beach, Florida[251]; and Denver, Colorado. Denver, though, was immediately withdrawn from consideration by representatives for the city, who cited scheduling conflicts.[252]

Campaign finance[edit]

This is an overview of the money being raised and spent by each campaign for the entire period running from January 1, 2017 to March 31, 2019, as it was reported to the Federal Election Commission (FEC). Total raised are the sum of all individual contributions (large and small), loans from the candidate, and transfers from other campaign committees. The last column, Cash On Hand (COH), has been calculated by subtracting the "spent" amount from the "raised" amount, thereby showing the remaining cash each campaign had available for its future spending as of March 31, 2019.
