DATES FOR PRIMARY/CAUCUS/DEBATE

Post by Cain's The Main on Tue May 17, 2011 6:44 pm

A temporary committee of the Republican National Committee (RNC), set up in 2010, recommended a new plan. Under this plan, the traditional states (Iowa, New Hampshire, Nevada, South Carolina) would hold their events in February, states' elected delegates proportionally could hold their events in March, with winner-take-all states and any other remaining states holding their events from April onward. The amendment was passed in August 2010 by the full RNC by a vote of 144–103.
Straw polls

Several Republican and conservative organizations have held straw polls to test the support of potential presidential candidates among their respective memberships. As of 24 April 2011 (2011 -04-24)[update], Herman Cain (tied with Newt Gingrich in one poll), Ron Paul and Mitt Romney have won 2 of these contests, and Mitch Daniels, Mike Huckabee and Newt Gingrich (tied with Herman Cain in one poll) have each won 1.
