The United States presidential election of 2000 was the 54th quadrennial presidential election. It was held on Tuesday, November 7, 2000. The contest was between Democratic candidate Henry Raymond, Governor of Connecticut, his running mate California Representative Richard Agee and Republican candidate John McCain, an incumbent Senator from Arizona.

Incumbent Republican President William Morgan was not eligible to serve a third term, which placed Vice President John McCain as the automatic front-runner of the Republican nomination. McCain was seen as the early favorite for the Republican nomination, and despite a contentious primary battle with other candidates, secured the nomination by Super Tuesday. McCain chose New Jersey Governor Christine Todd Whitman as his running mate (the first female ever to be nominated to a major ticket), and Raymond chose Representative Agee as his. Both major party candidates focused primarily on domestic issues, such as the budget, tax relief, and reforms for federal social insurance programs, though foreign policy was not ignored. Raymond's campaign center-piece was healthcare.
