President Joe Biden’s failure to deliver on his promise to “build back better” this past election cycle has some questioning whether he should be messing with how the Democratic primary calendar is structured. Afterall, Biden and the Democrats fell short in 2022 and now Biden is risking a potential Republican backlash from Georgia governor Brian Kemp, as his plans to elevate Georgia to one of the first states in the nation to vote in 2024 is threatening the integrity of elections and being seen as more so a desperate act than a plan for success.
With how badly Biden has failed America and his polling numbers being absolutely horrendous it is quite shocking that the DNC would even listen to Biden’s pitch to change the primary dates for Georgia’s presidential primary election.
Washington Examiner reports, Biden’s plan to overhaul the Democratic primary calendar and make Georgia one of the first states to vote in the 2024 presidential primary is facing pushback from the state’s Republican governor.
Cody Hall, Kemp’s aide, told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution on Wednesday that Kemp “has no role in this process and does not support this idea.”
Raffensperger, a Republican who is Georgia’s secretary of state and a fellow Republican, will decide whether the changes are implemented or not. Kemp’s endorsement, or lack thereof, will carry weight with Raffensperger.
While Raffensperger liked the idea of the Peach State “moving up in the rankings,” he said it would require “buy-in from both sides of the aisle.”
A Democratic National Committee committee approved Biden’s proposal in December to make South Carolina the first state to vote in the 2024 presidential primary, bumping Iowa from the top spot. South Carolina will vote on Saturday, Feb. 3, 2024, followed by New Hampshire and Nevada three days later, Georgia on Feb. 12, 2024, and Michigan on Feb. 27, 2024.
For the first time in 50 years Iowa will not be the first state to vote in a primary.
Sioux City Journal reports, it is a shift away from rural America that the Democratic National Committee has decided to drop Iowa from first-state status.
Democratic leaders, led by President Joe Biden, changed the primary election order in early December, making Iowa the first state since 1972 to participate. Iowans diligently performed this role during the caucus process.
It is no surprise that the Democrats would care little for rural America as they are continuing to focus exclusively on the major cities that hold the most sway across America. This is just another step in the process for disenfranchising a vast majority of Americans from the process of selecting our next leader, and highlights the fact that Democrats care little for everyday Americans, and will only consider bending knee to the woke mobs, and identity politics. If there was to be any hope for bringing sanity back to the Democrat party, it is quickly fading as the voices of reason that come from the Iowa caucus are now going to be fully ignored.
