(DES MOINES) -- A committee of Iowa Republican Party leaders have zeroed in on Jan. 3, 2012 as the date for their state’s caucuses, but the Iowa GOP’s central committee will still have to vote to formally approve the date.
This puts pressure on New Hampshire to pick a date in between Iowa and Nevada’s Jan. 14 Caucuses. But New Hampshire’s secretary of state, Bill Gardner, will not be rushed. He said this week that he’s unlikely to set the date of the Granite State primary until Oct. 17 at the earliest.
