April 24th Primary Bill Passes Committee Hurdle in Delaware Senate

The Delaware state Senate Administrative Services/Elections Committee on Wednesday considered and passed SB 89 with a 4 (out of the six members) on the merits. That basically clears the way for the bill to be considered by the full Senate in relatively short order and be moved from one Democratic-controlled chamber to the next before the session ends at the end of June.

SB 89 is now on the Senate's "Ready List" and could be debated and voted upon quickly in the near future. The bill would move the First state's presidential primary from the first Tuesday in February to the last Tuesday in April -- the same date as Pennsylvania and as Connecticut is targeting with with legislation to move the primary there.
