What is the presidential election and platform process for Republicans in 2020?
It begins at a true grassroots level with neighborhood caucus meetings which bring together Republicans who reside within a specific neighborhood (precinct). They will select delegates to the Republican County Convention and discuss issues and candidates. They meet on February 29, 2020 and the times and places will be announced through the newspaper and other media outlets.
