Moving the at least the Democratic primary from June to March is doing Kamala Harris a YUGE favor if she’s gonna run for President….She is well known and liked in the state and would NOT have work hard to collect the majority of dlelgates in a March presidential primary….

That even though the West Coast of America doesn’t so well in sending people  to the nation’s White House….

California is pushing forward with a plan to change the state’s primary date from June to March, a move that could scramble the 2020 presidential nominating contest and swing the early weight of the campaign to the west.

If adopted by the legislature this week — as is widely expected — and signed into law by Gov. Jerry Brown, the early primary would allocate California’s massive haul of delegates just after the nation’s first contests in Iowa, New Hampshire, Nevada and South Carolina.

The earlier primary could benefit at least two potential presidential contenders from California — U.S. Sen. Kamala Harris and Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti — while jeopardizing the prospects of other candidates who will struggle to raise enough early money to compete in expensive media markets in the nation’s most populous state.

“In all probability, the winner of the California primary would be the nominee,” said Don Fowler, a former Democratic National Committee chairman from South Carolina.

While acknowledging that “a lot of this rationale this far in advance just is completely wrong,” Fowler said, “The implications for the flow of the winnowing process [of candidates] is very significant in moving California.”

California for years has sought to exert greater influence in presidential elections. Despite its size, the state has been a relative afterthought in national campaigns, marginalized not only because of its late primary, but because of the high cost of campaigning here….

  1. This is a DONE deal folks…..

    ….California lawmakers sent Gov. Jerry Brown a bill early Saturday that would move the state’s 2020 primary election up three months to March, bidding to exert greater influence on the next presidential nominating contest.

    If signed into law by Brown, the early primary could dramatically alter the shape of the next presidential race, forcing primary candidates to compete in a state that has long languished as an afterthought in national elections.

    ( I can only see this a Gift for their Sen. Kamala Harris, who in my mind would be able to win South Carolina and Califonia EASILY and then have a firewaLL for getting the nomination…Just my take this early)

  2. The sheer physical size of California would probably skew things a bit in favor of well-known, well-financed consensus candidates and against upstarts without big financiers and establishment pull but with different ideas (e.g. Gene McCarthy, George McGovern, Scoop Jackson, Fred Harris, Jerry Brown, Bernie Sanders, Bill Bradley, Dennis Kucinich, Barack Obama).

    Candidates can be in or close to nearly every town in New Hampshire — whose voters in turn have a fair chance of seeing them up close face-to-face — but that’s impossible in California.

  3. Harris was the AG of the state. (2 terms)..Her ex-Boy Friend was San Fransico Mayor Willie Brown….She was the DA of San Francisco….Beat Loretta Sanchez to get the US Senate Job….

    Right now media people are calling HER the ‘darling of Progressives’ that Sanders and Warren SHOULD own?

    SHE IS VERY WELL KNOWN IN CALIFORNIA……

    I could be way ahead of myself but IF she runs in 2020 for the nomination?

    Her home state is HERS to lose….

    As I pointed out?

    She SHOULD win South Carolina in that the black vote there is the key…..

    She’s in the cat bird seat right now, I’d think for 2020….

    But that IS a bit in the future, right?

  4. Oh, and the Right and Left is already going after her in a effort to define her early…..

    Here’s a long look at her that isn’t from Wiki…..Remember the tag …’Darling of the Progressives’….

    The Two Faces of Kamala Harris

    Harris’s rise has produced a fiery debate among liberals and the Left. Leftists and progressives have come out in strong opposition to Harris’s candidacy, with some declaring #NeverKamala and some high-profile Bernie Sanders supporters, such as National Nurses United executive director RoseAnn DeMoro, making clear their lack of enthusiasm for her candidacy. For some prominent liberals, this pushback is simply the product of virulent racism and sexism among an imagined (and non-existent) all-white, all-male, Sanders-supporting base.

    While most Harris-supporting liberals wouldn’t go this far, there is deep suspicion among some Democrats that opposition to Harris is motivated by similarly less-than-noble motives — namely, that it’s part of a project of poisoning the well for any potential challengers of a Bernie Sanders or Sanders-like candidacy in 2020.

    In truth, there is much about Harris’s long record as a public prosecutor in California — the vast bulk of her career — that is up for legitimate criticism by any prospective 2020 Democratic voters….
