National Democrats voice support for plan that could bump down Iowa caucuses


Des Moines Register: At a virtual meeting Monday, members of the Democratic National Committee expressed support for a plan to restructure the party’s presidential nominating calendar, possibly upending Iowa’s decadeslong role as the lead-off state. The DNC’s Rules and Bylaws Committee, which sets the primary calendar, discussed a proposal that would allow any U.S. state or territory to apply to host one of the early nominating contests. The proposal outlines principles the committee would consider when evaluating those applications. They include a state’s diversity, its general election competitiveness and “the ability to run [a] fair, transparent and inclusive nominating process.”
