Republican Candidates

Donald Trump

Lemme cut right to the chase. My name is President Donald J. Trump, and I'm running for presidential reelection in 2020. I have the highest IQ out of all the other candidates, and I've proven it time and time again! We've recorded the lowest levels of unemployment for minorities ever, meaning more African-Americans, Hispanic-Americans, and Asian-Americans are working than ever! Plus, I've moved Prison Reform forward with the First Step Act, BANNED semi-automatic bump stocks, and donated my presidential paycheck to numerous Government departments--but the media won't tell you that! Always remember that, despite the negative press covfefe.

William Weld

Bill Weld is a Republican candidate running in the Republican primaries for the 2020 presidential election. During his time as the former Governor of Massachusetts, he made many reforms, cutting taxes 21 times, and balancing the budget. He also participated in the creation of many landmark reforms, such as signing the welfare reform, making public schools accountable, and was always an avid supporter of LGBT Civil rights. He was also an Attorney General where out of 111 cases, he was able to win 109 convictions. We need someone that will fight for the American people, and Bill has proven to be capable of doing that. The immigration system needs reform, and women should have the right to abortions. We must undo the damage Trump has done during his presidency. On Election Day, you know the drill, vote for Bill!

Mark Sanford

Mark Sanford is a Republican candidate running in primaries for the 2020 presidential election. From 1995-2001, Sanford represented South Carolina in the House of Representatives, with admirable efforts to lower government spending, taxes, and expansions. From 2003-2011, he then served as governor of South Carolina, making further cuts to state spending, and reconstructing the South Carolina Department of Motor Vehicles as an agency independent from the highway department. During his second term in 2009, Sanford was the first governor to ever refuse federal funding of $700 million, proving his devotion to decreasing the national debt. He organized an eventual compromise where the state legislature provided funds to decrease state debt with the acceptance of said federal funding. Sanford is a strong supporter of the One Percent Spending Reduction Act, or the Penny Plan, as he hopes to cut a penny from every dollar of government spending. Although debt or excessive spending is Sanford’s main focus, he also is concerned for and plans to act upon countless issues important to America. Sanford finds protection of civil liberties, during a time where government frequently invades privacy, to be of crucial importance. Sanford hopes to avoid intervention, easing off the trade war to prevent global conflicts. He believes in allocating certain federal funds for elementary and secondary education to scholarships, vouchers, and low-income families to provide children with the opportunity to attend private and religious schools if they wish to have the option. Sanford recognizes global warming and the impending climate crisis as an issue, proven by his vote against offshore drilling in the Gulf of Mexico. More than anyone, Mark Sanford is devoted, willing to do anything and everything he can to make a better place for the American people. So on election day, remember to vote Mark Sanford; he’ll fight for what you stand for!
