Though the South Carolina primary is one of the first four nominating events in the presidential cycle and commonly known as the “First in the South” primary, the Republicans may not schedule this voting event in 2020.
Doing so would not be unprecedented. The state Republican Party followed a similar course in 2004 to ensure that President George W. Bush had no impediment to obtaining unified support from the South Carolina delegation. Because of President Trump’s demonstrated strength in this state, party leaders are considering again following such a course. In any event, the Democratic primary will definitely be held and likely scheduled for February 29th.
