Podcast: Moving Pennsylvania’s Presidential Primary Earlier in 2024

Last week, the state Senate unanimously passed a bill that would move the commonwealth’s primary earlier in 2024 in order to give Pennsylvanians a greater say in who the Democratic and Republican nominees are.

In the latest episode of the PoliticsPA Podcast, Republican Senator John Gordner, prime sponsor of the bill, and Democratic Senator Sharif Street, a co-sponsor, talk about the legislation and the politics of Presidential primaries. The duo discuss Pennsylvania’s history of being a non-factor in the nomination process, the challenges of moving the date, whether the bill can pass in the House, as well as some of the other benefits of moving the primary to March in 2024.

You can listen to the podcast on AppleSpotify and most major podcast platforms.

  1. I think this is a bad idea. Every election since 2008 has had at least one candidate go long and pour resources into the state. We got to give Hillary the go-ahead in 08 and slammed the door shut on Santorum in 12. This just makes us yet another late March state.

  2. If you were wondering, doing a podcast once a month is not nearly as informative as the way this publication used to be run. Real articles. You’ve literally driven your readers away.
