Louisiana Senate Passes Bill Moving Presidential Primary from March 19 to March 5

On May 30, the Louisiana Senate amended HB 431 so that the bill, in addition to making campaign finance changes, moves the presidential primary from mid-March to early March. If the bill is signed into law, the 2016 presidential primary will be March 5 instead of March 19. Thanks to Frontloading HQ for this news.

In the meantime, Missouri Governor Jay Nixon still hasn’t signed or vetoed SB 892, which would move the Missouri presidential primary from February to March.

    Great news, as I believe that moves Louisiana into the group of states that will be required to award delegates proportionally on the Republican side. Gives the grassroots guys a little bit of a chance to establish their footing before the winner-take-all contests kick in.

    Maybe Buddy Roemer will give it another go. :-)
