2020 United States presidential election in Florida

← 2016 November 3, 2020 2024 →

The 2020 United States presidential election in Florida is scheduled to take place on Tuesday, November 3, 2020, as part of the 2020 United States elections in which all 50 states plus the District of Columbia will participate.[1] Florida voters will choose electors to represent them in the Electoral College via a popular vote. The state of Florida has 29 electoral votes in the Electoral College.[2]

Miami Beach, Florida, which hosted the 1972 Democratic National Convention, was a finalist to host the 2020 Democratic National Convention.[3] The other finalists were Milwaukee and Houston. Milwaukee was ultimately decided as the host.[4][5]

As of May 2019, Donald Trump and Bill Weld are the declared Republican candidates for 2020. Florida Republicans Jeb Bush and Marco Rubio, both primary candidates in 2016, declined to run against Trump.[6][7][8][9][10] Rubio also endorsed Trump.[11]

A number of Democrats are running or have expressed interest in running, and Elizabeth Warren, Kamala Harris, Bernie Sanders, Beto O’Rourke, and former Vice President Joe Biden are among the major declared candidates.[12][13][14] Additionally, Kirsten Gillibrand has formed an exploratory committee.[15]

There has been speculation that Andrew Gillum the former Mayor of Tallahassee and Democratic nominee for Governor of Florida in the 2018 might run.[16][17] Media personalities Joe Scarborough and Dwayne Johnson, both Florida natives, have declined to run to be the Democratic nominee.[18][19] Scarborough represented Florida's 1st congressional district in the United States House of Representatives from 1995 to 2000 as a Republican, but since 2017 has identified as "Independent".
