And if they don’t a December New Hampshire primary could happen.
For the 2012 election Florida and then Nevada jumped ahead of the dates national GOP leaders had promoted. Gardner responded with a challenge, announcing last week that he was prepared to schedule New Hampshire’s primary in early December to avoid squeezing it between the Jan. 3 Iowa caucuses and Nevada’s Jan. 14 date.
Nevada officials initially scoffed at Gardner’s threat, but by Thursday they said they were reconsidering. A vote on setting the date is expected Saturday in Reno. Gardner appears to have won the standoff — again. – Washington Post
Update: Nevada did move, to Feb 4. And they got some convention perks out of it:
As part of negotiations in recent days, the Republican National Committee promised Nevada delegates they could sit on the floor “in the best positions,” and would have prime hotel space if they made the change, according to Nevada GOP Chairwoman Amy Tarkanian.
