A bill introduced this week by Sen. Mike Gianaris would schedule New York’s presidential primary for April 28.

The primary would be the first presidential nominating contest in New York that takes place under the state’s new early voting law.

“It is important for New York to maximize its influence in the Presidential nominating process and this bill does just that,” Gianaris said. “The selected date will increase our state’s allotment of delegates based on party rules.”

New York’s primary often is held late enough in the calendar that the nominee for either major party is set by then. However, New York’s primaries for the GOP and Democratic nominations took place amid heated contests for both parties and candidates traveled to New York for campaign events.

The primary victors were the two New York residents in the race, Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton.
