John Deeth Blog: Leaping Las Vegas: Nevada Caucus to Jan. 12
Excerpted from this post at John Deeth Blog
Nevada, one of the Democratic Party's official early nomination
contest states is preparing to move its caucuses forward a week to
Jan. 12. The Nevada Democratic Party hasn't said anything official
yet, but the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports on a "caucus update"
e-mail sent to party supporters which says: "Today, it appears that
Nevada's interests and significance in the nominating process may be
best served by holding our precinct caucuses on January 12th, 2008."
Jan. 12 is in keeping with the "consensus calendar" the Atlantic's
Marc Arbinder reported last week. This calendar places the Iowa
caucuses on Saturday, Jan. 5, and the New Hampshire primary on Jan. 8.
