    Of the current first four, I’d like to advocate for having Nevada go first for several reasons:

    Demography (white/latino/black/asian) looks more like the US overall than any of the other three.

    Small enough, and only two media markets, so it’s affordable.

    Delivered for the party with a Dem state trifecta and other statewide offices. Both statehouse chambers are majority female.

    Headed in all the directions the party wants to go on voting rights: from caucuses to primary, ease of registration, vote by mail.

    More me personally, it would outrage the big East Coast media. “Send reporters to get in touch with the typical voter in Las Vegas?”Report

    The continued existence of things like the Iowa caucuses is the perfect symbol of the sclerotic state of gov/society. We really need to be able to move on to new things instead of sticking with out moded and poorly functioning systems.Report

    The nut graf:
    “We have to be honest with ourselves, and Iowa is not representative of America,” Perez said Friday in an interview. “We need a primary process that is reflective of today’s demographics in the Democratic Party.”

    This is what really is driving a lot of our politics, and the sooner we can create an electoral process that reflects the electorate the better.Report
