Delaware on the move?
The First State is eyeing a change to the date of its presidential primary
Things have been quiet in Delaware.
As all the other neighboring and nearby states with the same or similar late April presidential primary dates have made efforts to shift out of a conflict with the observance of Passover in 2024, legislators in Delaware held fast to their spot on the calendar. That and other calendar uncertainty at the front of the 2024 calendar gave rise to chatter about the possibility that President Biden’s home state could be pushed into the early window on the Democratic presidential primary calendar as a substitute for any states that opted to go rogue or were unable to meet the requirements for a waiver from the national party.
And with Georgia seemingly set on March 12 and New Hampshire signaling an even earlier (and non-compliant) date, the door appears to still be ajar for Delaware to swoop in after the June 3 DNC deadline and snag an early window slot.
