Saving the Iowa Caucuses

The Hotline Blog is reporting that the RNC's summer meeting in Minneapolis, MN in August will include a Rules Committee meeting devoted entirely to discussing the 2012 Primary Calendar.

Iowa well be well represented by Steve Roberts, who is a member of the Rules Committee.

It's a long way off, but this is going to be critical. After watching the Democrats continue to mess with their system this year for 2008 (a topic I'll leave for another time, but I'll just say that I tend to agree with Nagle tha Iowa's Democrats lack of cooperation with NH has the potential of being a colossal mistake), there's a lot of people out there that would like to take Iowa's premiere place within our political system. Steve's gonna have his work cut out for him, but I hope that we'll show our party and the country in the upcoming months of the 2008 caucus campaign that we have a valuable role to play and that should be continued.
