DC: Democrats delay primary order decision until after 2022 vote

“The Democratic Party on Saturday delayed a decision on potentially reordering its primary calendar for the 2024 presidential election until after November’s midterm elections. The Democratic National Committee’s rules committee had planned to decide during meetings in Washington beginning next week whether to recommend that presidential voting should continue to begin with Iowa and New Hampshire. That’s amid calls by some party leaders and activists that more diverse states, including the current No. 3 and No. 4, Nevada and South Carolina, should move up. The committee was also mulling adding a fifth early primary contest prior to ‘Super Tuesday’ when a large number of states traditionally vote.” (07/31/22)
