CT to join the rush....

Secretary of State Susan Bysiewicz, and several lawmakers, are making the argument to move Connecticut's primary from March to Feb. 5 - a national trend these days that is shaping up to be a "national primary" on that date.

By latest counts, if every state looking to move their primary to the Feb. 5 date does in fact do that, more than half the delegates to the Republican and Democratic conventions would be chosen on that date - pretty much deciding who the nominees for both parties would be. Those states scheduled for primaries after Feb. 5 would virtually have little - if none at all - voice in the selection process.

What do you think?

Under the current system the best answer is to join 'Superduper Tuesday' - Feb 5, 2008. A good long term solution is the rotating regional primaries where regions of the country take turns being the first in the nation.

I agree...and by the way, nice job you're doing on the local Waterford page.

That might sound like a good idea but I doubt it squares with the Constitution.

The states decide the time and manner of voting.
