Multiple states cancel GOP 2020 primary – The latest: Trump wins in South Carolina, judge rules

Several states have scratched GOP primaries and caucuses, an effort that helps the president consolidate his support.

COLUMBIA, S.C. — A judge on Wednesday upheld the South Carolina Republican Party’s decision not to hold a 2020 presidential primary, a move taken by several states in erecting hurdles for the long-shot candidates challenging President Donald Trump.

In her order, Circuit Judge Jocelyn Newman wrote the law “does not give Plaintiffs a legal right to a presidential preference primary, and the Court will not substitute its own judgment for that of the General Assembly or the SCGOP.”
