California Democrats on Tuesday rejected a proposal to allow candidates for President Donald Trump’s 2020 re-election campaign to run on their own.
The California Democratic Party announced the move, in a memo to members.
The party is also asking the state Democratic Party Chair to “take appropriate action” if the proposal passes.
The Democratic National Committee and the California Democratic Committee are in the process of drafting a platform to govern the 2020 elections.
The platform will be finalised in January.
Democrats say the platform would include proposals to:Support open primaries to elect Democrats to state and local offices.
Propose “progressive, universal, transparent, fair and accountable election procedures” that “protect the rights of eligible voters and make sure that no one is forced to choose between participating in an election or paying a fine for participating in a poll.”
The platform also calls for “robust and aggressive enforcement” of the Voting Rights Act and to increase the number of Election Day early voting sites across the state.
