South Carolina GOP Moves Its Primary Date Earlier

...than Florida:
SCGOP Chairman Chad Connelly today announced South Carolina’s 2012 Republican Presidential Primary date. Chairman Connelly commented:

“Last Friday, a nine person committee brought chaos to the 2012 calendar. Today, South Carolina is making things right.

“South Carolina Republicans have a thirty year track record of picking the eventual Republican Presidential nominee. We will continue that historic tradition on January 21, 2012.

“It will undoubtedly be a spirited campaign to make Barack Obama just the worst ONE term President in American history. We are united in this mission, and any candidate who ignores South Carolina does so at great peril.”
That almost sounds like fighting words for the state of Florida...
