Next year the California primary will be one of the earliest in the nation, which is a change from prior years. It also has by far the largest number of available Democratic convention delegates. As a result, winning California — or at least doing very well there — is probably going to be the key for any Democrat who wants to win the 2020 nomination.
I am a lifelong Democrat with a passion for social justice and progressive issues. I have degrees in writing, economics and law from the University of Iowa.
