Nevada getting an early jump on 2016 primaries shuffle
Putnam says that if Nevada passes SB212, the "window" in which the other early primary states can hold their contests gets compressed, and the vagaries of each state's rules has him speculating that South Carolina's primary could get moved up to Jan. 16, New Hampshire's primary to Jan. 5, and Iowa would get stuck teetering on the edge of the New Year. "Realistically," says Putnam, "a Saturday, Jan. 2 caucus would be the only workable, post-New Years date left (a possibility FHQ raised recently)."
