California politicians want a bigger say in who will be the nominee for president from their respective parties. To that end, they have moved their presidential primary from early June to March 3.
The impact of the move will be gigantic. Many Democrats have been complaining for years that Iowa and New Hampshire are not “representative” of the electorate as a whole. Reading between the lines, Democrats didn’t like the idea that middle class-white people had such a large influence on who would be running for president.

In effect, Democrats will be giving enormous – perhaps decisive – influence to the far left wing of their party. more here
