GOP Reacts Nationally To Florida Primary Decision

GOP Reacts Nationally To Florida Primary Decision

Since Florida moved its 2012 GOP Presidential primary to Jan. 31, there is much speculation that a number of States will follow suit. On Monday, South Carolina Republicans decided to move their State’s primary to Jan. 21.

Iowa, New Hampshire and Nevada all plan to hold their primaries and caucuses before South Carolina’s to ensure that the Florida decision does not cost the party delegates in the election process because of Republican National Committee rules to keep the primary process from interfering with the holiday season, according to The Hill.

“Forty-nine states played pretty in the sandbox. Only one did it wrong,” said South Carolina Republican Chairman Connelly of the Florida decision. He said that on Monday, South Carolina restored order.

New Hampshire Republicans may move their State’s primary to December, which would make it the earliest in history. Many in the GOP believe that the rush for early primaries is going to hamper any late-coming entrants into the 2012 race. Speculated candidates like Sarah Palin are not the only contenders who might be affected; lesser-known candidates will also face troubles raising funds with a compressed election calendar.
