Florida May Hold Early Primary Election

Thursday, September 29, 2011

Presidential candidates put a lot of effort into strategizing their election campaigns, and timing is an important part of that. Republican candidates could find their carefully arranged schedules completely flipped tomorrow, if Florida decides to move its primary election to January 31 — a month earlier than party leaders expected. This could result in other states changing the dates of their primaries, including the traditional early states: Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina, and Nevada.

Chad Connelly, South Carolina GOP chairman, and Terry Holt, Republican political strategist, react to the proposed change.

Interesting contrast of how the focus is on Republicans dealing with the essential minutia of organizing elections but no discussion at all of a Democrat Governor in North Carolina who suggested that Congressional elections be suspended which would violate the Constitution. Of course that point of view goes completely against the comfortable media narrative that only conservative women are "extremists" who say dumb things.
