Early states join forces to protect 2012 nomination calendar

House speakers from Iowa, New Hampshire and South Carolina have stepped forward in support of the current presidential nomination calendar, as well as to protect the traditional early starts of the process by their states.

“Having Iowa lead off the nominating process provides Americans with a unique opportunity to learn more about the candidates and their views,” said Iowa House Speaker Kraig Paulsen, speaking with the group at a National Speakers Conference.

“The living room settings and retail political climate Presidential hopefuls must navigate in Iowa brings out the honesty and authenticity in each individual seeking the office of President. I continue to support the RNC’s calendar of Iowa, New Hampshire and South Carolina.”

Although calendars set by the Republican National Committee and the Democratic National Committee have slated the Iowa caucuses to lead off the nomination process on Feb. 6, the New Hampshire primary to follow eight days later, and the Nevada caucus and South Carolina primary to serve as the third and fourth contests to close out February, both Florida and Michigan are considering moving their primaries forward and disrupting the calendar.

Political parties have threatened those states that jump ahead with loss of national delegates if they elect to hold contests before March 6. In addition, earlier this year, Iowa joined with South Carolina in calling for the Republican National Convention to be moved from Florida if the state refused to abide by calendar rules.

“New Hampshire remains 100 percent committed to standing shoulder to shoulder with Iowa and South Carolina to ensure that the traditional primary process is preserved and strengthened. The Granite State has shown time and again that we have the right people to decide who should lead the nation. Other states have tried to leapfrog the current calendar and move ahead of us, but none have shown that they have what it takes to do a thorough job of vetting presidential candidates like we do in local, retail setting,” said New Hampshire House Speaker William O’Brien.

South Carolina House Speaker Bobby Harrell added, “As the stakes continue to rise nationally, it has never been more important that Republicans stand united and select a Presidential nominee who will lead our nation back to economic recovery and prosperity. South Carolina has solidified it’s place as a conservative proving ground for presidential contenders, and our conservative voters are once again dedicated to picking our Party’s nominee. We will continue to play a pivotal role in that process with our ‘First in the South’ Presidential Primary, and I stand strong with my Republican counterparts from Iowa and New Hampshire in support of the RNC’s approved presidential nominating calendar.”
