Next year’s Iowa caucuses on Feb. 3 could be held in far-flung locations as distant as California — and even abroad, including Mexico and Japan. That’s due to a new idea, the “satellite caucus meeting,” that Democrats hope to use to expand “access” to the quadrennial political contest, which traditionally kicks off the start of the presidential primary.
As Breitbart News reported earlier this year, Democrats in Iowa and in Nevada — which is the third state in the party’s primary — both proposed to allow voters to participate in their caucuses by telephone if they could not attend the traditional community gatherings at which they debate the merits of the candidates before casting their votes.
But in August, the Democratic National Committee (DNC) rejected the caucus-by-telephone proposals, noting that there were concerns over “security.” Gee ya think??? and they are worried about russia collusion?? yeah right!!!
So Iowa Democrats went back to the drawing board and came up with a different version of the same idea: allowing Iowans who are out of state to caucus locally, wherever they happen to be.
