John Deeth Blog: Caucus Date Leapfrog Update: SC GOP Announcing Date -- In NH

Excerpted from this post at John Deeth Blog

The Manchester Union-Leader is reporting that the South Carolina
Republican chair will announce his state's GOP primary date on
Thursday -- at the New Hampshire state capitol. Observers including
the New Hampshire Republican chair expect the date to be Jan. 22 - the
currently scheduled New Hampshire date. Talking Points Memo calls the
New Hampshire-based announcement "a sign of chivalry to New
Hampshire's first-primary tradition." In South Carolina, the parties
set their own primary dates. South Carolina Democrats are still
scheduled for Jan. 29, and according to a Democratic Party agreement
are supposed to have that date to themselves as the fourth contest.
But the GOP-controlled Florida legislature moved that state's primary
to Jan. 29.
