Move it and you lose it…

Wag of the Finger

Feeling the pressure of other states complaining about shifting the primary season, the national GOP warned the state parties not to move their primary dates – which included Florida. (See “GOP Warned Not To Move Up Primary“) Granted, no one is asking me, but I think it is fair for Florida to move up the primary, if only to get it into the conversation before the election is decided.

After working a couple of campaigns in Florida (and growing up there), Florida is a microcasm of the United States – with every major population having a geographic region within the state. Why wouldn’t it be appropriate for the state to have an influential primary? And, since the candidates are often making junkets to South Florida and other affluent parts of the state, it makes perfect sense to make it a place for primary election efforts. I wish Senator Ring’s efforts success.
