What is a presidential primary?
Presidential primary elections and caucuses are held in each U.S. state and territory. They’re part of the nominating process for presidential candidates. This process was never included in the U. S. Constitution, but was created over time by the major political parties. In Connecticut, both parties, Democratic and Republican, are having a presidential primary on April 26. Delaware, Maryland, Rhode Island, and Pennsylvania will also hold their presidential primaries on that date.
