In a new article for Politico Magazine, CCLP Director Geoffrey Cowan compares the 2024 primary cycle, where both major parties have all but selected their presidential nominees by the end of January, to the 1968 primary cycle, where major candidate Sen.

Cowan writes, “At the very least, the parties should take this year as a warning. This would be a good time for both parties to develop new guidelines for the selection of presidential candidates that allow the public to play a role in the nominating process — but keep it open well into the calendar year of the election.”
