Election 2016

Primary season for the 2016 Presidential election is quickly approaching. Many candidates are exploring whether they should run or not, and as the year moves along, some of those candidates will declare that they are candidates for their party’s nomination.

As a person announces their candidacy, their name will be listed below (and have a line through it if they later drop out). Any party that has access to 270 Electoral Votes is included.
