Nevada could join New Hampshire and Iowa in holding early presidential votes under a Democratic National Committee proposal designed to broaden the pool of voters choosing the presidential nominee.
A DNC commission that seeks to revamp the party's primary schedule is moving toward adding a Western state and a Southern state in January.
Nevada and Colorado are the most likely candidates in the West largely because neither has joined a separate movement to hold a Feb. 5 Western States Primary, commission members said [...]
Nevada also is being considered for the January vote because of its growing Hispanic population, large number of union households and booming population, Stratton said.
Anything that lessens the influence of Iowa and New Hampshire in the nomination of our presidential candidate is a good thing. Anything that increases the influence of the West in the process is a good thing.
There's been talk that the commission will slot in four or five caucuses between Iowa and New Hampshire, ensuring broader regional representation in those crucial early contests.
