GOP PRIMARIES
(2007-11-09)
(wgvu) - THE REPUBLICAN PARTY SAYS IT WILL PUNISH
MICHIGAN AND FOUR OTHER STATES FOR SCHEDULING EARLY NOMINATING
CONTESTS.
REPUBLICAN NATIONAL COMMITTEE CHAIR MIKE DUNCAN SAYS MICHIGAN,
NEW HAMPSHIRE, FLORIDA, SOUTH CAROLINA AND WYOMING WILL LOSE HALF
OF THEIR DELEGATES TO THE NATIONAL CONVENTION. COMMITTEE RULES
REQUIRE THE PUNISHMENT FOR STATES THAT HOLD NOMINATING CONTESTS
EARLIER THAN FEBRUARY 5TH.
IOWA AND NEVADA ARE PLANNING REPUBLICAN CAUCUSES IN JANUARY. BUT
THOSE STATES WOULDN'T BE PENALIZED BECAUSE, TECHNICALLY, CAUCUS
RESULTS ARE NOT BINDING ON CONVENTION DELEGATES.
MICHIGAN GOP CHAIR SAUL ANUZIS SAYS HE REMAINS CONFIDENT THAT
ALL OF THE STATE'S 60 DELEGATES WILL BE SEATED FOR NEXT YEAR'S
NATIONAL CONVENTION.
THE STATUS OF MICHIGAN'S PLANNED PRIMARY IS UP IN THE AIR AFTER A JUDGE RULED THE STATE LAW IT'S BASED ON...TO BE UNCONSTITUTIONAL.
