Media: New York State May Postpone Primary Elections Due to Coronavirus
According to the publication, the proposal was presented in the upper house of the state legislature. Lawmakers who have taken this initiative believe that former US Vice President Joseph Biden will in any case be nominated as a Democratic candidate for the upcoming presidential election in November. According to the authors of the bill, because of this, there is no need to conduct primaries during the crisis caused by the spread of the virus.
The publication states that the Republicans canceled the primary election in New York. They were also scheduled for April 28th. The current American leader Donald Trump has already enlisted the support of a sufficient number of party congress delegates to nominate a Republican candidate in the presidential election.
Democratic primaries in Delaware, Pennsylvania and Rhode Island are also currently scheduled for April 28th. Authorities in Georgia, Indiana, Kentucky, Connecticut, Louisiana, Maryland, and Ohio previously said they would postpone the holding of primary Democratic elections due to coronavirus.
