Kansas GOP won't hold a caucus in 2020

Posted: Updated:

The Kansas Republican Party will not organize a caucus for the 2020 election,  the party confirmed today.

The Kansas Republican Party said the decision follows a standard that goes back to President Lincoln's re-election.  Every time an elected incumbent Republican has run for re-election, except in 1912,  the Kansas GOP state convention adopted a resolution instructing all delegates to vote for the elected incumbent.   

Political parties pay for the cost of caucuses.  The Kansas GOP estimates organizing a caucus would cost the party $250,000.

Politico.com reports Kansas is one of four states expected to cancel republican caucuses or primaries.
