Democrats Mull Primary Schedule Changes
Democrats Mull Primary Schedule Changes (washingtonpost.com): "Iowa and New Hampshire, combined, have 4.2 million people - just 1.5 percent of the U.S. population. Yet Democratic presidential candidates spend months and millions of dollars each presidential cycle in those two states before the Iowa caucuses and New Hampshire primary, the first events in the party's nomination process.
Does it make sense to spend so much time and money to reach the same small fraction of the electorate each election? Should other states get a chance to hold the first contests in an election cycle?"
