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.
