California’s early primary probably ends up being a loser

It was just six years ago that Brown signed a bill, with just three “no” votes in the entire Legislature, that moved the presidential primary election back to June after three different and largely unsuccessful attempts to jump the line and give California voters more clout when it comes to picking presidential nominees.

But this time for sure it’s going to work, the bill’s supporters promise.

While legislators are eager to boost California’s political power, there are probably 49 other states that don’t want to see it happen, which could leave the state facing the same troubles it did the other times the primary date was shifted.
