The District of Columbia is a small geographical region in the US and is the only US area not represented in the US Senate or House but rather represented by Shadow US Senators and Representatives who are not sworn in or seated by the US Senate and lack congressional voting power (but can cast nonbinding floor votes). The capital is allotted 3 electoral votes due to the adoption of the 23rd Amendment to the US Constitution in 1961, which entitles the District of Columbia the same number of electoral votes as the least populated state in the nation.
Since D.C. is so small both parties have decided to go directly to a state Convention rather than hold a Primary or Caucus. The Democratic D.C. Presidential Convention will be held on June 6th, 2020 and the Republican Convention will be on March 14th, 2020.
Voting in D.C. has always favored Democratic candidates, in fact, no Republican has ever won a single electoral vote. Despite the lack of ever gaining an electoral vote in D.C., the 2020 Election could present an opportunity for Trump since he did not do well against Hillary Clinton in D.C. in 2016. Trump is the incumbent President and no other notable Republicans have publicly challenged him for the seat meaning his odds to win the Republican nomination are very likely but in terms of the Presidential election, the District may be more difficult to win over.
The District has been solid blue for the last 14 US Presidential elections. In fact, over those years every electoral vote in D.C. went to a Democratic candidate. In 2020, Dems may feel safe in terms of the party position during the Presidential election, however, with so many Democratic candidates running in 2020 it may be difficult for the District to name a clear winner for the Democratic Primary pick.
