Early states' GOP opposes Nevada as 1st presidential primary

Source: AP

LAS VEGAS (AP) — Republicans in the four early presidential nominating states on Tuesday jointly opposed a Democratic push in Nevada to make the Western state the first to hold a primary.

GOP chairs Jeff Kaufmann of Iowa, Stephen Stepanek of New Hampshire, Michael McDonald of Nevada and Drew McKissick of South Carolina said in a statement they want to preserve the historic schedule, which has led off with Iowa’s caucus followed by New Hampshire’s primary.

“As the GOP leaders of the four carve-out states, we want to make clear that we stand together in protecting the presidential nominating schedule as it has existed for many years,” the Republicans said in the statement. “Our alliance is strong and we will continue to work together to preserve this historic process.”

The move comes as a bill that would push Nevada up from from the third-in-line caucus state to the first-in-the-nation primary sits on Democratic Gov. Steve Sisolak’s desk.

3. SC is the only one with a legitimate case against NV. IA and NH are no longer reflective of America.

Of course, there is no reason for both parties to have their nominating events on the same day. For instance, Repubs had a convention a few weeks ago to choose their VA governor nominee whereas Dems selected their candidate today.
