John Deeth Blog: Jan. 3? Maybe.
Excerpted from this post at John Deeth Blog
National folks seem to be zooming in on a Jan. 3 caucus date, bases on
Saturday's state GOP conference call. But it ain't a done deal yet.
Here's Marc Arbinder's take: 'The committee authorized the party's
executive director, Chuck Laudner, to lobby Democrats and urge them to
accept the same date. If Laudner succeeds is getting the Democrats to
agree, the two parties will announce the date together. If, by Monday,
October 15, Laudner fails, then he's authorized to announce the Jan. 3
date himself.' The Dems told Iowa Independenters me and Jay Wagner:
"We are working with our Republican counterparts for a mutual caucus
date." From the right, Sporer says: "Any ultimate decision by RPI will
be made only after consultation with IDP leadership. Our party desires
to act as closely as politics permits with the IDP leadership in the
interest of the state of Iowa."
