15. You know, I like that!

I like that idea. If it wasn't all-midwest, a first-primary day of WI, PA, OH (maybe IN) would be a good way to build strong campaign infrastructure in those states, and help them tip blue on election day.

Maybe adding FL, and NC could divert from the all Midwest concentration. Adding AZ and/or NM could western-ize it too.

So that's my proposal:

WI, PA, OH, IN, FL, NC, AZ, NM for the first primaries.

That's a healthy bunch of delegates, but not TOO many to render future contests irrelevant. They're states we need good campaign infrastructure in. Diverse. And there are enough states in that list so maybe the campaigns get spread around enough not to cause election-fatigue in any one state.
