States, Including Those With Democratic Leaders, Rejecting Biden’s Plan to Change Primary Calendar

States, Including Those With Democratic Leaders, Rejecting Biden’s Plan to Change Primary Calendar

It’s not just Iowa and New Hampshire. Nevada is also pushing back.

President Joe Biden wants South Carolina to be the first state in the Democrat primary over Iowa and New Hampshire.

But Democrat leaders, along with Republicans, in Iowa and New Hampshire:

More than 20 New Hampshire Democrat leaders urged Biden this year to alter his plan, which they warned could hurt their party’s performance in 2024, since they would be responsible for ending their state’s status as the first primary state. New Hampshire Republican Gov. Chris Sununu has vowed to spike any possible plan to move his state’s primary.

Georgia’s Republican Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger acted in May to set the state’s primary for March 12 – a clear rebuttal of Biden’s calls to move that state’s primary up to February.

Iowa’s lawmakers have also attempted to undermine the president’s plan to delay their caucus. Democrats in the state proposed a compromise that would let the state hold its caucus first as usual, but then delay announcing vote results until May, but there is no final decision.

Nevada Republicans don’t want to change the calendar. New Hampshire’s state law says it has to be the first primary state. If things change, Michigan might have “to cut the state legislative session short.”

For some reason, South Carolina Rep. Clyburn, the #3 Democrat in the House, has such a hold on the party. He only supported Biden because he promised to nominate a black woman to the Supreme Court. He has to be behind this move.

In December, the Democratic National Committee’s Rules and Bylaws Committee voted to make South Carolina the first primary state in 2024.

President Joe Biden told the Democrats he wanted South Carolina to be the first primary state to “ensure that voters of color have a voice in choosing our nominee much earlier in the process and throughout the entire early window.”

It’s like the pedophile thinks there aren’t black voters in states other than South Carolina.

Isn’t it interesting how when Brandon flexes his phone and his pen, every citizen has to kowtow, but his own party nabobs get to buck and balk.

Watch for a bloodbath between RFKJr and Biden because RFKJr will win some early primaries.

This isn’t Biden’s idea. NOTHING coming out of this guy’s mouth is “his idea”. Obama is running the show. These are OBAMA’S ideas.

    Obama’s faction of the Democrat Cabal. Obama is the face not the brains. He was much more the President than Joe since he could not be replaced for any reason short of his death whereas Joe is gone the minute they think there is advantage in him being gone. I would say that best you can say about Obama is he was first among equals.

This plan to change the order of the primary States is absolutely coming from the Biden camp.

Keep in mind Biden lost in both NH and Iowa in 2020. In 2016 HRC lost NH bad and squeaked out a bare plurality over Sanders by .3%. In NH the non establishment Sanders crushed it both ’16 and ’20. In Iowa Sanders came close in ’16 49.3% to HRC 49.9% and in ’20 Sanders won the most ballots in the first round of the caucus, in subsequent rounds, many math errors and allegations of shenanigans later he loses to ….Mayor Pete. Both States will absolutely give the finger to the establishment candidate if they choose and that’s Biden.

Biden and his team don’t want to risk a pair of early losses which is the reason for the attempted switcheroo for States Biden performed better. A sitting POTUS losing to Kennedy in the first two primary States wouldn’t be a good look for a guy who is facing a perception he is past it due to mobility issues, gaffe prone and seems either angry or incoherent when speaking.

    A sitting POTUS losing to RFK would mean no 4th term for Obama.

      RFK’s closet better be completely clean. They might kill him if they can find a crazy “white supremacist” to do the job. But they will absolutely character assonate him all day long.

        Gotta believe RFK2 is holding some serious kompromat on the DS cabal. If RFK2 is threatened seriously – or dies -the kompromat will be widely released.

        Assume the Kennedy clan has a robust “dead man switch” in place so that release cannot be stopped by anyone if RFK2 dies.

          Serious kompromat? Who cares. It is now almost 60 years since his uncle was murdered and the gumment is still hiding “serious kompromat” on that. Sure, he might be eliminated if he gets embarrassing, but the deep state can wear a little more opprobrium without too much worry.

          Whatever the JFK assassination was, it wasn’t a government plot. Our government can barely keep a secret for 10 years, let alone 60.

          RFK Jr. is a conspiracy nut. I can understand him being a nut about the assassination of his father, but not being a nut about the assassination of his uncle, MMR vaccines, and apparently every other vaccine before COVID. This is not a man to have the nuclear launch codes. (Nor is Biden!)

I don’t understand how Biden can force any state to have a particular date for a primary. Isn’t that the States jurisdiction?

    He can’t make the States change the order of the primary contests. He can use the power of his office to pressure/nudge them in the direction he wants.

    One idea already being floated is that if NH and Iowa don’t play ball then the Biden campaign will boycott their contests. Not as crazy as it may seem b/c this way he avoids a direct defeat. The other piece of this plan being floated is the DNC altering the required delegate count to offset the impact of the boycott on the Biden campaign. Shenanigans out in the open for all to see.
