Representative Costa is one of the authors of legislation which would move California’s primary to March 3. In past presidential election years, California voters went to the polls in early June. He discussed the bill and its possible implications for presidential politics. Representative Costa indicated that the bill will reach the governor’s desk before the legislative session ends in mid-September. If nothing changes, the primary would be held on the first Tuesday in March, which would be after the Iowa caucus and New Hampshire primary. Democratic National Committee Chairman Ron Brown was cited as a major supporter of the legislation who expressed the need to have an early primary in California for demographic reasons. Representative Costa concluded his remarks about his legislation by discussing reapportionment in California and the effect it would have on representation in Washington. close
