Primary date

The General Assembly's Government, Administration and Elections Committee unanimously approved the measure to move Connecticut's presidential primary from March 8 to Feb. 5. If approved by the legislature and signed into law by the governor (and she has indicated she sees no problem with that), Connecticut will join 22 other states in voting that day.

Combined, those 23 states make up about 40 percent of the total population of the country. And those states, combined with those holding primaries and caucuses before Feb. 5, represent more than half of the convention delegates who actually get to vote for the party nominees.

I've got more to say about the push for a Super Duper Tuesday in my Sunday column in the paper.
