What's the latest on the Texas primary date? I heard that it was supposed to be settled by Monday (2/6) but I haven't heard any updates and didn't find anything after a quick search.

I'm curious because those of us in the later primary states may actually have a primary that matters, especially if the Texas primary is delayed. It will likely take until the end of April for anyone to clench the nomination. That will be more difficult if the Texas primary is not held on April 3 as now scheduled.

We have a state marriage amendment on our primary ballot and the turnout will be significantly higher if the Republican nomination fight is still ongoing at that point.

Last I heard they said TX would not make the April 3rd date & they were talking as if it were certain to be mid-April instead. However, another article said they were being overly optimistic & there is a good chance that TX will not make it at all! :evil:

Personally, I am expecting that we will have one, but that it will most likely end up some time in the 2nd half of April.

We might not have one? What would that mean for Cruz v Dewhurst? They all get to be senator? :lol:

The presidential primary in Texas, where a bitter battle over redistricting maps has thrown a wrench in plans for an April 3 primary, now looks like it will settle in late May, according to a federal judge.

My colleague Dave Catanese takes a look at how the uncertainty over the primary date is affecting campaigning (or lack thereof) in the state:

Newt Gingrich frequently cites Texas as a state crucial to his viability, because of the whopping 155 delegates up for grabs.

But the former speaker — like every other candidate on the ballot — is at the mercy of a federal court, which is trying to cobble together a resolution between the state and a phalanx of minority groups this week.

“Texas ought to do what they have to do and we’ll organize the campaign with Gov. Perry accordingly,” Gingrich said at press conference in South El Monte, Calif. Monday. “We’ll get to Texas when we can.”

Last week while campaigning in Allen, Texas, Rick Santorum expressed a desire for the matter to be decided quickly. “The sooner Texas is, the better it is for us,” he said.

Eric Fehrnstrom, a senior aide to Mitt Romney, told POLITICO their campaign has “no preference on when they hold it.”

Nonetheless, the absence of a specific date has paralyzed campaigns across the board.

“They’re kind of frustrated with the delay,” said Texas Sen. John Cornyn. “It’s just sort of a general concern.”

It's also worth noting that a late May Texas primary puts the two most delegate-rich states on the map -- Texas, with 155 delegates, and California, with 172, on June 6 -- at the tail end of the primary calendar, making it that much more plausible that there still won't be a GOP winner delegate-wise until May or later.

Just saw a Santorum attack ad by Romney's PAC. Looks like NC may get to help decide who the Republican nominee is if Texas moves to late April. Our primary is May 8.

Yep, saw a Rombo PAC anti Santorum ad here as well.

Not sure why they are wasting money in North Carolina and Texas. Go ahead and pour money down the drain if you want to though. If Santorum wins Michigan, then Washington, he'll be in great shape for Super Tuesday. Romney will only win Virginia, Vermont, Massachusetts, and Idaho, and even Idaho might be questionable. Santorum will blow him out in Ohio, Georgia, Tennessee, Oklahoma, Alaska, and North Dakota. Then, Romney will get blown away in Kansas, Alabama and Mississippi followed by Missouri. Then, Romney's chances in Illinois will be slim since he'll be reeling. Then, it's Louisiana and good luck with that one.

I wouldn't rule out Romney losing Arizona as well. As long as nothing big comes out on Santorum, he'll be the nominee.

This is too bad because Santorum is CRUSHING everyone else.

Why can't stuff like this happen to a Romney state?

This Texas poll along with the polls out of Tennessee and Oklahoma, plus the results from Missouri, South Carolina, and northern Florida are good indicators of how primaries in the South will go. If Gingrich remains in the race, then Santorum will likely win the Southern states by a healthy margin (exception of Georgia being Gingrich's home state). If Gingrich is out of the race, it's going to be massive blowouts in the South, and Romney will be in danger of not picking up any or very few delegates in those states.

The poll is good news. Last time Texas didn't pick the winner was 76 when we went for Reagan over Ford.
