In case you haven’t noticed, the field of Democratic candidates for president next year has gotten a little crowded.
According to this handy Times candidate tracker, 16 Democrats have jumped into the race already, and three more, including Joe Biden, are likely to join.
That’s a lot of candidates to keep track of — and since California’s presidential primary is now on March 3 instead of in June, the 14 million people eligible to vote in the Democratic primary here have an even louder voice than they’ve had in years.
I checked in with Karen Skelton, a Democratic consultant based in Sacramento, to see how she thought things were shaking out so far.
“I’m actually mesmerized by the possibilities in front of us,” she said, “because it’s such a big state and we haven’t gone early for so long.”
That means, she said, more of the candidates will have to be visible in a geographically vast state — not as simple as taking a quick swing through Iowa or New Hampshire. It’s less likely that the field will have narrowed to just two or three candidates by the time California’s primary rolls around.
And in order to be seen, Ms. Skelton said, the candidates will have to spend.
“Huge amounts of money,” she said. “Like million here can buy you four states of media elsewhere.”

And candidates who don’t have as much experience campaigning in deep blue but deeply diverse California will need to micro-target groups of Democratic voters.
“You’re not just going, ‘I’m on the left,’” she said of the candidates. “You’re like, ‘I’m going for the Asian Pacific Islander vote. I’m going for the rural Latino vote. I’m going for the coastal vote north of Riverside County, south of Santa Monica.’”
Of course, Ms. Skelton said, Senator Kamala Harris “has an enormous advantage.”
Ms. Harris and Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont have both previously campaigned throughout California, so they have edges in the Golden State, she said.
Still, nothing’s a sure bet when the field’s this wide open.

As my colleague Lisa Lerer wrote in today’s On Politics, we’re currently in the throes of a “Buttigieg Boomlet,” referring to Pete Buttigieg, the mayor of South Bend, Ind. And Ms. Skelton said that for Beto O’Rourke, focusing his efforts on his giant, fast-growing home state of Texas could be a smart strategy.
A recent Quinnipiac University national poll showed Ms. Harris trailing Joe Biden, Mr. Sanders and Mr. O’Rourke.
And at home, Ms. Harris doesn’t exactly have unqualified support.
While a new poll from the Public Policy Institute of California found that 54 percent of likely Democratic voters thought Ms. Harris should run for president, her approval rating as a senator was 48 percent among all likely voters, which was the same as the number for Senator Dianne Feinstein.

One of the fun things about a new season, beyond the sense that you’re hitting a kind of refresh button on your life, is that you also get to hit refresh on your palate. This week, Tejal Rao wrote about how for her, spring means getting back into rhubarb:
Every spring, when I spot red stalks of rhubarb at the market, I get ready to bake. The tang, the soft, creamy texture when it’s properly cooked, and the precise shade of hot pink, are all ideal for a big, celebratory spring cake, where rhubarb acts like a counterweight to the sweetness, bringing everything into balance.
Alison Roman’s rhubarb-almond cake is my go-to, rich and crisp-edged and so easy to pull together if you’ve got a stand mixer. And this strawberry-rhubarb upside-down cake gets really jammy with fruit.
But this year, I’m trying Melissa Clark’s rhubarb poundcake, striped with whole stalks, picking out thin dark stalks, rather than thick ones — they’ll cook faster and tend to be less fibrous.
