California considers an early primary…again

In this time of never-ending campaigns, politicos game the presidential races for 2020 and beyond. And so Sen. Ricardo Lara, D-Bell Gardens, pushed Senate Bill 568 to move the presidential primary to the first Tuesday after the first Monday in March.

The bill is on Governor Brown’s desk.

A March primary would help any candidate from California, whether it’s Sen. Kamala Harris, Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti or some rich entrepreneur.

Californians make up 12 percent of the nation’s population, are the most ethnically diverse, and have the largest number of military veterans. Yet they cede clout to Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina and Nevada, which have a combined population that is less than the combined populations of Los Angeles and Orange counties.
