Arizona Primaries for Statewide offices and Congress


12 March 2003 - FOX news reports that an Arizona state Senate committee backed a Republican measure which would save taxpayers $3 million by cancelling the Presidential primary. "My district sent me down here to balance the budget without a tax increase. I'm trying to wring every dollar out of state government that I can"-- Republican state Senator Jack Harper.


Saturday 3 April - Saturday 17 April 2004 - The District and County Conventions (held two weeks prior to the state convention) elect delegates to the state convention.


Saturday 8 May 2004: The Arizona District Caucuses and State Republican Convention convenes.

24 distict delegates to the Republican National Convention are chosen in today's District Caucuses. There is no formal system applied to relate the presidential preference of the participants to the choice of the delegates. The participants at each caucus alone determine if presidential preference is to be a factor in such choice and, if so, how it is to be applied. These delegates will attend the Republican National Convention officially unpledged to any Presidential candidate.

  • 3 National Convention Delegates are selected in each of the 8 congressional districts.

The State Convention chooses 25 at-large delegates from Arizona to the Republican National Convention.

  • There is no formal system of allocating Arizona's National Convention delegates to presidential contenders. These delegates will attend the Republican National Convention officially unpledged to any Presidential candidate.

In addition, 3 party leaders, the National Committeeman, the National Committeewoman, and the chairman of the Arizona's Republican Party, will attend the convention as unpledged delegates by virtue of their position.
