John Deeth Blog: 2012 GOP Calendar May Protect Iowa

Excerpted from this post at John Deeth Blog

The Republican National Committee's Rules Committee is meeting this
week in Albuquerque, and the agenda includes the 2012 primary
calendar. The leading plan on the table protect Iowa's first in the
nation role, but as usual, Michigan is out to end that. Under
Republican rules, only the national convention can set the nomination
calendar, so the decision on Iowa's fate needs to be made before the
Sept. 1-4 convention in Minneapolis. The rules committee must give a
proposal to the full RNC, which is expected to endorse whatever the
rules committee approves and send it on to the convention.
