Statement From California Democratic Party Chair Eric C. Bauman on 2020 Presidential Primary move

Los Angeles - California Democratic Party Chair Eric C. Bauman released the following statement in reaction to news that Governor Brown has signed legislation moving California's 2020 Presidential Primary to March:  

“With all due respect to our brothers and sisters in Iowa and New Hampshire, California is the beating heart of the national resistance to Trump, and California Democrats are defining the progressive agenda for America with the work we are doing on the ground every single day. When it comes to deciding the Democratic Nominee, our voices need to be heard early in the process.

It’s just common sense to ensure that grassroots activists, donors and everyday Democratic voters from the largest and most progressive state in the Union should have a major role in deciding the Democratic Presidential nominee. I want to thank Secretary of State Alex Padilla and Senator Ricardo Lara for leading the fight to ensure that California Democrats play a pivotal role in selecting a progressive champion to defeat Donald Trump and Mike Pence in 2020.”
