John Deeth Blog: Mauro Testifies On Senate Leapfrog Bill

Excerpted from this post at John Deeth Blog

Iowa Secretary of State Mike Mauro testified in Washington Wednesday
on a Senate bill that would end the frontloading and leapfrog
competition between states seeking early presidential nominating
contests. S1905, sponsored by Senators Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn., Lamar!
Alexander, R-Tenn., and Joe Lieberman, Former Democrat-Conn., would
create four regional primaries in early March, April, May and June of
2012. The order would be determined by lot and then rotated in future
cycles. The bill exempts Iowa and New Hampshire, who would remain
first. "Iowa and New Hampshire do an excellent job in vetting
candidates," Mauro said in prepared remarks before the Senate Rules
and Administration Committee.
