NATIONAL PARTY LEADERS WILL WAIT TO DECIDE THE FATE OF THE IOWA DEMOCRATIC PARTY’S 2024 CAUCUSES UNTIL AFTER THE NOVEMBER ELECTION.

A GROUP OF DEMOCRATIC NATIONAL COMMITTEE MEMBERS WERE TO MEET THIS WEEK AND RECOMMEND WHICH FIVE STATES SHOULD GET TO HOST THE EARLY VOTING CONTESTS IN THE NEXT PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION, BUT THAT DECISION IS NOW DELAYED.

DEMOCRATS FROM IOWA, ALONG WITH 15 STATES AND PUERTO RICO ARE VYING TO HOST THE OPENING VOTING IN THE PARTY’S NEXT PRESIDENTIAL NOMINATING PROCESS.

IOWA DEMOCRATIC PARTY CHAIRMAN ROSS WILBURN SAYS IT’S IMPORTANT FOR SMALL RURAL STATES LIKE IOWA TO HAVE A VOICE IN PICKING THE PARTY’S NEXT NOMINEE.

SOME NATIONAL PARTY LEADERS SAY IOWA LACKS THE KIND OF DIVERSITY AND GENERAL ELECTION COMPETITIVENESS THAT EARLY VOTING STATES SHOULD HAVE.
