纽约, Nebraska and the group Democrats Abroad were the only applicants who didn’t make the cut.
The remaining applicants will make presentations later this month to the DNC’s Rules and Bylaws Committee, which is tasked with determining the party’s nominating process.
Committee co-chairs James Roosevelt and Minyon Moore invited Colorado, 康乃狄克州, 特拉华州, 佐治亚州, 伊利诺伊州, 爱荷华州, 马里兰州, 密西根州, 明尼苏达州, 内华达州, 新罕布什尔, 新泽西州, 俄克拉荷马州, 波多黎各, 南卡罗来纳, Texas and Washington to make presentations to the Rules and Bylaws Committee during a June 22-24 会议.
The committee will select a group of states over the summer, and that decision will then need to be approved by the full DNC.
今年早些时候, Democratic Party officials approved a plan that kicked off the process that could determine which states will get to hold their presidential nominating contests first in
The new plan scraps the current set of early states of Iowa, 新罕布什尔, Nevada and South Carolina and implements a process that would prioritize diverse battleground states that choose to hold primaries, not caucuses. Under the new structure, states will apply to hold early nominating contests and the rules committee will select up to five that will be allowed to go before Super Tuesday, the first Tuesday in March.
