The Republican Party presidential primaries, 2016 will take place within the Republican Party prior to the 2016 general election. In anticipation of the primaries, the Republican National Committee began polling email subscribers in January 2014 as to their choice for the nomination among 32 potential nominees, telling its supporters, "The battle for the White House has already begun."[1]

Background[edit]

2012 Presidential nominee Mitt Romney lost the election to incumbent President Barack Obama. Fearing a long, drawn out primary season could hurt the 2016 nominee like it may have hurt Romney, the Republican National Committee has drafted plans to condense the season, with plans for the 2016 Republican National Convention to be held in late June of the election year, the earliest since Republicans nominated Thomas Dewey in 1948.[2][3] By comparison, the 2012 Republican National Convention was held August 27–30.

In April 2014, Robert Costa and Philip Rucker of The Washington Post reported that the period of networking and relationship-building that they dubbed the "credentials caucus" had begun, with prospective candidates "quietly study[ing] up on issues and cultivat[ing] ties to pundits and luminaries from previous administrations."[4]

Candidates[edit]

The following notable individuals filed with the Federal Election Commission to run for President of the United States in 2016, or have expressed to the media that they are running. (Although these individuals are notable, that notability does not necessarily equate with viability as a candidate.)
