Rule Change May Push Back Fla.'s 2012 Primary

Monday, 24 May 2010 10:40 AM EDT

Florida's presidential primary election in 2012 may be pushed back two months — if new rules being considered by the Republican National Committee (RNC) are put in place, according to a heraldtribune.com report.

The proposal, slated for a vote by the RNC in August, would bar Florida and all but four other states from having presidential primary contests before April 1.

According to the report, the new rules are aimed at stopping states from "front-loading" the primary season, according to H. Paul Senft Jr., a member of the RNC from Florida.

"It's an attempt to have it all a little more organized," said Senft, a Polk County Republican.

Senft added that the practice of front-loading makes it harder for lesser-known candidates to get their campaigns moving — owing to the expense of competing in so many early states at once.
