The United States presidential election of 2020 was the 59th quadrennial United States presidential election. It was held on Tuesday, November 3, 2020. Republican Party nominee and former Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker defeated Libertarian Party nominee and Michigan Senator Justin Amash; American Party nominee and Arkansas Senator Tom Cotton; and Democratic Party nominee and Vice President Martin O'Malley.
President Hillary Clinton had resigned from the presidency in mid-2019 following a scandal. Clinton's Vice President and successor, Tom Perez, declined to seek a full term in office. Perez's Vice President Martin O'Malley emerged from the Democratic primary to claim the nomination.
The campaign's dominate theme was domestic policy, mostly focusing on the U.S.-Militia War.
Walker was helped by a chaotic Democratic base. He won the election carrying 32 states and a majority of the popular vote.
