RNC Will Penalize Florida for Early Primary
Just in case Florida Republicans were feeling left out, the Republican National Committee announced that it would penalize Florida, among others, for holding its primary prior to February 5th.
"The rules are clear," said Tracey Schmitt, a spokeswoman for the Republican National Committee. "Any state that holds their primary outside of the window shall be penalized delegates."
The RNC will refuse to seat at least half of Florida's delegates to the Republican National Convention next year, if Tallahassee persists in holding the presidential primary on January 29th.
