Iowa Democrats Move to Jan. 3
Iowa Democrats are poised to move their primary to Jan 3, placing the contest on the same day Republicans have already chosen and one of the earliest caucus days in history.
The chair of the Iowa Democratic Party, Scott Brennan, will recommend this new date to top party officials on a conference call on Sunday and it is likely to be approved.
By setting this date, Iowa is ensuring its influence will remain in the presidential nomination process, as it at least for now has the earlier vote of any state, although New Hampshire officials are still considering hold a vote in December.
