Ryan Binkley Fourth Presidential Candidate to Make DC Republican Presidential Primary Ballot

Washington, DC – (November 16, 2023) On Thursday November 16, 2023, Ryan Binkley became the fourth Republican candidate for President of the United States to qualify for the ballot at the March 1-3, 2024, District of Columbia Republican state party primary. The DC Republican Party issued the following statement on Binkley’s entry into the race:

DC Republican Party Chairman Patrick Mara stated, “The District of Columbia has added another candidate to our presidential primary ballot. We are pleased to announce Ryan Binkley as the fourth candidate to appear on the ballot in the DC Republican Presidential Primary. DC Republican voters will have their voices heard as we have an unprecedented impact in choosing a nominee for president compared to other elections. Congratulations to Ryan Binkley and his campaign for being the fourth to make the ballot in DC. It will be a highly anticipated primary as we follow the early states – and vote fifth in the nation, and immediately before Super Tuesday.”

The District of Columbia Republican Party Presidential Primary will be held on Friday, March 1, Saturday, March 2, and Sunday, March 3, 2024, at a location and times yet to be announced in Washington, DC. During the pre-Super Tuesday DC Primary, Presidential candidates will compete for 19 proportionately allocated Delegates and 16 Alternate Delegates to the Republican National Convention in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, where Delegates from across the country will convene to select the Republican nominee for President of the United States. National Republican Party rules necessitated that the DC GOP move the primary from the District-scheduled primary on June 4 to the earlier dates in March. With the filing deadline set on December 1 and former President Donald Trump first to qualify for the ballot, it is anticipated that up to four more Republicans could make the Presidential Primary ballot in DC.

The DC Republican Committee is composed of registered Republicans living throughout the District of Columbia in all eight wards nominated and elected to serve as members.
