Gov. Jerry Brown has signed a bill to move California's primary elections in 2020 to the beginning of March, three months ahead of when they were held in 2016.

California’s leadership hasn’t come up with anything good in decades.
All the troubles the state faces, this kind of ‘stuff’ is what they focus on.
It will not affect the outcome. The candidates will all be Democratic due to the jungle primary system.
They are trying to influence the election...Just what you’d expect from Russia.
I’m sure there’s some advantageous reason for Democrats by doing this. We need to figure out Moonbeams angle.
I think they are trying to get Kamala Harris momentum with a big win in the early going.
Must be for all the super-delegates.
Whom ever is the anointed one will have the nomination sewn up by March.
That leaves a lot more money for Preezy campaigning.
Its too bad the Rats have destroyed one of our best states. The state has everything now its just a Rat wasteland of insanity.

It just might. Before this, Democrats without deep pockets had a chance. They could afford to buy ads in the small, early states. Then maybe gain a little traction. But who can afford to blanket California with ads? Only the big boys.
What this will do is effectively end the primaries after Super Tuesday, and even in Super Tuesday, other states will get the short end of the deal since California carries so much weight. In reality, a candidate could ignore everything but CA, and by winning CA, have an insurmountable lead.
Oh, I HOPE so.
Natural Born Citizen won’t get swept under the rug if she’s in the race.
I, personally, will start a class action as soon as she files in Michigan.
Early Cheating will start even earlier
I think also it favors more liberal/progressive Dems over center mainstream Dems. And deep pockets will move you ahead too.
Ballot harvesting in CA will start when IA and NH go to polls.
I can certainly see that argument...No doubt for the democrat candidates. Maybe not so much for the republican candidates given Kalifornia has barely any red blood left in it.
I've always advocated for three sets of primaries (50 primaries in each state) all on the same day. Hear me out...
So the first set of primaries the last Tuesday in January. This will separate the pretenders from the serious candidates.
Another set of primary the last Tuesday of March. This will narrow the field to maybe 2-3 candidate from each party.
Then one final set of primaries the last Tuesday in May that will determine the nominee.
The so-called "jungle primary" does not include the presidential election, so the benefit is for statewide offices. Since California is a one-party state, this means that the Democrats only have to pay for campaigning through March before narrowing down the races to the Top Two Democrats.
California Democrats don't have to spend all spring campaigning.
Look for CA to try and influence GOP candidate by playing games with voter registration.
They REALLY wanted Jeb in 2016 as my dead mom could have beaten him.
This means 11% of REPUBLICAN delegates will be selected in March too.
11% of 50% +1.
There are few who can afford to compete in this largest of media markets and enormous state.
It completely changes the dynamics of party nominations.
California is a magnificent land, with malignant planners at the top.
You have a coastline on the western side that reaches from Mexico to Oregon. You have mountain ranges that stretch across the state. In many places you can ski in the early morning and lay out at the beach later the same day.
It has some of the nation’s best farmland.
It has the lowest and highest points in the lower 48 states.
It has caves, hot springs, volcanoes, earthquakes, lakes, and massive forests. It has some of the most amazing places in the nation, the Redwoods and Yosemite. It has coastal places that remind a person of heaven.
It’s animal and bird life are diverse.
With all the Left’s efforts, they still haven’t been able to destroy the place. It still eeks out an amazing GDP.
The racist policies of the state government have severely sliced the White populace as planned.
Thirty years ago Whites in California approached 60-65%. Today that number has been cut in roughly half.
Imagine policies set to drive half the Blacks or Hispanics from the state.
It’s a real shame what goes on in California.
Folks like to say it’s California the land of fruits and nuts. All the while the same encroachment is slowly strangling their states.
Folks, this nation hangs in the balance.
When the folks in California tried to tell you what was happening, many of you laughed.
Take a look at what is taking place along the Texas border. Mexico is creeping northward.
Our illegal alien element is now disbursed on most states. The refugee contingent has been exploded in many states as well.
It used to be you could go to major cities and find islands of foreign territory. This has spread. We are being thinned out so we have no self-determination.
As California goes, so goes the nation.
We can barely loft a pro-American man for the presidency.
Our national and state policies had been be toughened up.
Whites are in danger of losing self-determination.
This isn’t just in the U. S. either.
It’s a global phenomenon.
It’s time for some real push-back.
