Dems propose rules change to disuade 2/5/08 primary

New Jersey’s early and potentially relevant 2008 presidential primary — soon to be set for February 5th — could be in jeopardy if a proposed Democratic National Committee rules change passes. The move would reduce the size of state’s delegation by as much as 30% as a penalty for moving their primaries to the first Tuesday in February. California is among the state’s considering a February 5, 2008 primary; the California Senate President and Assembly Speaker have asked Democratic National Chairman Howard Dean to reject the proposal.
