The Next Round of Presidential Primaries


In a little more than a week, the next round of presidential primaries will occur:

Saturday, February 20

Nevada Caucus for Democrats
South Carolina Primary for Republicans

Thursday, February 23

Nevada Caucus for Republicans

Saturday, February 27

South Carolina Primary for Republicans

Why do they do it this way? I don’t know. The local state parties made that decision.

This sets up the “Super Tuesday” Primary (or as some are calling it, the SEC Primary) on March 1.

Primary elections will occur in Alabama, Alaska Caucus (R), America Samoa Caucus (D), Arkansas, Colorado Caucus (D), Georgia, Massachusetts, Minnesota Caucus, North Dakota Caucus, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Texas, Vermont, Virginia, Wyoming Caucus (R).

These contests should clarify the race . . . or perhaps not. The GOP field should be winnowed further.
