Background

Following their dismal defeat in the 2018 midterms, in which they lost all but 5 seats in the House and all but one in the Senate, the Republican Party disbanded. Most members defected to the Conservative Party, including Marco Rubio, who again ran for President in 2020. 

Republican Party Primaries

Rubio, who had joined the Conservative Party after becoming the only Republican Senator as a result of the 2018 midterms, quickly won the nomination, and selected Jon Huntsman as his running mate. The nomination of Huntsman was effort to attract Libertarian and moderate Republican votes which was ultimately unsucessful and instead served to harm the ticket's credibility with votes, Huntsman having run as the Constitution Party candidate in 2016 and again as that party's candidate for Senator from Utah in 2018.

Democratic Primaries

President Hillary Clinton was unchallenged in the Democratic Primary. Jim Webb remained the party's Vice Presidential Nominee 

General Election

In the General Election, Clinton's immense popularity led her to a sure victory over Rubio.

Results

Hillary Clinton won the Presidency with 420 electoral votes, winning 37 states and the District of Columbia.
