ILLINOIS — Pritzker is one of several high-profile Democrats who have called upon their party to reassess the order of nominating states.
Illinois Gov. J. B. Pritzker on Friday offered a full-throated case for why his state’s primaries should supplant Iowa’s caucuses as the nation’s first presidential nominating contest, repeatedly emphasizing the importance of electoral diversity in the candidate selection process.
“I do not think Iowa should go first,” Pritzker told POLITICO at the 10th annual State Solutions Conference, conducted on the sidelines of the National Governors Association’s winter meeting in Washington.
