Florida has to go after SC or they will lose their Tampa convention, imo.

I say we then move it to Ohio or better yet................

PA to scare Obama*. ;)

*Regarding adding to our RED states in the above HuckaMap, while the West is in pretty solid liberal hands, we might be able to mount an attack on a state that resembles both a midwestern and a southern state in many ways..

"Republican presidential candidates have perennially contested Pennsylvania in recent years, and the results are usually close, but they have not succeeded in actually winning the state since 1988. President Obama defeated John McCain there by ten points. But while he currently leads all five possible contenders tested against him for 2012, including a native, two of them come significantly closer to making it the close battle it was in 2000 and 2004.

Obama bests Sarah Palin, 51-36; Newt Gingrich, 50-40; and former Senator Rick Santorum, 48-40.

But Mitt Romney lags only 42-46, and Mike Huckabee only 44-47.

Except Huckabee, who the president beats by 12 points with independents, the others trail with this group by 18 or 20 points."

- from Public Policy Polling 1/6/11

Alabama
AL has introduced legislation to move its primary back from the first Tuesday in February to the first Tuesday in June as a cost saving measure to coincide with its state and local electrions.

DC
Looking at moving to April 3 and align the MD's proposed primary date

Connecticut
CT has introduced legislation to move its primary from the first Tuesday in February to the first Tuesday in March.

Georgia
GA has decided to add some flexibility into its ability to change their primary date. Essential giving the secretary of state the power to set the date no sooner than 60 days prior to the determined primary date so that the primary is as soon as January 30th or as late as the second Tuesday in June. There is probably no coincidence in its earliest possible date being 1 day before FL's currently scheduled date of Jan. 31st. Looks like Ga wants to keep its prominence in the early part of the calenders but doesn't want to show thier hand in the process and give states the opportunity to leap frog them.

The AJC, our best attempt at a fish wrapper here in Ga, adds this
Quote:
This could give the state a great deal of fluidity. One foresees a great deal of interest in selecting just the right day by the likes of, oh, say, Newt Gingrich. Who is backed by Gov. Nathan Deal and is in the midst of establishing his campaign headquarters here.

Or Mitt Romney, who has been quietly building his organization here.

Wonder what exactly that means? What's he been up to?

I am not a conspiracy person, but my mind has been wondering on the subject of the the primaries for 2012. Utah and Minnesota seem to have some issues with moving thier primary date. Both are schedule to occur on Feb. 7th, but details in each of thier election law now inhibits them from changing the date. So now there are 3 states that I know of thate have issues with moving the date, FL, UT, and MN. Ga is another state that has framed its law so that changes can be made quickly within a time frame that is favorable to them.

Since the early states are important to each candidate and set the stage for the rest of the primaries, it would be advantageous if a candidate could encourage election law in a state that favors them in a way that would be helpful to ones pursuits, such as UT for Romney, MN for Pawlenty, GA for Gingrich and Huckabee, and FL for Huckabee and Romney. Each of these candidates when be looked apon favorably if they could win early in the process and each of these states seems to have some controversy in their election law.
