DNC chairman says ’time is ripe’ to reexamine order of state primaries

DNC Chairman Tom Perez said he believes the time is ’ripe’ to begin a conversation about changing the order that states hold their primaries in to ensure that minority voters have more of a voice in the early stages of the race. The issue was raised by some of the former presidential contenders who argued that states with a more diverse electorate should hold primary contests earlier.

Lost the election -> electoral college must go! Results in the primaries screw the establishment -> state order must be revisited. Do they never take a moment to analyse if it might be the player, not the game?

Unclear to me why the order of the primaries matters.

They'll want the states that have the most radical liberals and compliant Democrat Party leaders to be first so that they can better direct the outcomes.

California and New York are the only 2 states that the Democrats care about, so those should be the only to primaries.

The time is ripe for Perez to resign. After Iowa, his corruption and incompetence are now on full display.
