The 2020 presidential campaign of Tom James, the former Connecticut Senator from 2001 to 2013, was announced in March 2019.
Campaign[edit | edit source]
James was one of the higher polling candidates by the time the first debate was held in May 2019.
Despite coming in third in the New Hampshire primary, James withdrew his candidacy in South Carolina on February 20, 2020.
At the 2020 National Convention, James was encouraged to run for the nomination. He briefly did but the revival of his candidacy was short-lived after his deputy campaign manager Michelle York accused him of sexual harassment.
