DNC Agrees to New Presidential Primary Calendar, Making South Carolina First State to Vote

HeadlineDec 05, 2022

The DNC’s rules committee agreed Friday with President Biden’s plan to make South Carolina the first primary contest of the 2024 presidential election, replacing the Iowa caucus. Primaries in Nevada, New Hampshire, Georgia and Michigan will then follow. Iowa and New Hampshire, which had kicked off the voting schedule, are two of the whitest states in the country. Biden said the new voting calendar will give more weight to voters of color, who helped propel him to victory in 2020.
