GOP chairs Jeff Kaufmann of Iowa, Stephen Stepanek of New Hampshire, Michael McDonald of Nevada and Drew McKissick of South Carolina say in a statement issued Tuesday they want to preserve the historic schedule, which has led off with Iowa's caucus followed by New Hampshire's primary.
  • Nevada lawmakers have passed a bill aiming to make the state the first to weigh in on the 2024 presidential primary contests. The move on Monday upends decades of political tradition and is likely to prompt pushback from other early states that want to retain their places in the calendar. Nevada's bill still needs to be approved by Democratic Gov. Steve Sisolak to become law, It also needs backing of the national parties. The push for Nevada to jump past Iowa's caucuses and New Hampshire's longstanding first presidential primary follows a behind-the-scenes lobbying campaign led by former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid.
