Having set up Iowa Democrats for failure in 2020, the DNC is set to take away "first in the nation" from the Hawkeye State today as the Democratic National Convention's Rules and Bylaws Committee is meeting in Washington, D.C. to decide the future of the presidential nominating process.
If you remember, the DNC told Iowa Democrats what vendor to use for an App for the Caucuses and then wouldn't allow them to test it. It was a total bust and immediately afterwards, national figures starting talking about removing Iowa from it's coveted spot as fist in the nation.
Then last night, President Biden finally weighed in. Speaking to KCCI, "Scott Brennan, the only Iowan on the DNC's Rules and Bylaws Committee confirmed that Biden and his committee co-chairs have recommended the following early voting lineup: South Carolina, New Hampshire, Nevada, Georgia and Michigan."
Brennan is not happy. "A complete kick in the teeth. Very surprised. No courtesy of a call from the White House to frankly any member of the committee. The Washington Post had it before the committee did. So, you know, it says something to me about the process," he said.
Does it matter? Republicans have confirmed that Iowa will be first in 2024 and they embrace that with enthusiasm.
Is it important that Democrats will no longer come to Iowa first?
