Californians Deserve a Stronger Voice in Presidential Race
(Sacramento) - Speaker pro Tem Kevin Mullin (D-San Mateo) wrote Assembly Bill 84, which would move California’s presidential primary to March in 2020, with the goal of making California more politically relevant when it comes to presidential primaries. “Moving the presidential primary to March ensures that candidates pay attention to the voters in our state,” Assemblymember Mullin told the Committee on Elections and Redistricting as he presented his bill. “Under the current June primary schedule, candidates fly in for fundraising and then fly right back out again. The voters in the most populous state in the Union and sixth largest economy in the world should have the opportunity to be more politically relevant in our most important national election.” Here’s more in this Assembly Access video.
