January 29th Democratic Primary to be Non-Binding

This was always the best that was going to happen once Tallahassess decided to participate in the great front loaded car crash that is our primary season.

If they had decided to make the primary just one week later - February 5th instead of January 29th - Florida would now be second only to Iowa in importance.

Instead, we are another joke for late night comedy.

I suppose I should stop hoping that our state government will stop mucking things up every election, but it's getting frustrating, watching us constantly embarrass ourselves through the stupid, little games our legislature plays.

This is not to say that the primary will be meaningless, but only that we squandered a chance to play a part in picking our next president by doing things right, rather than by screwing up again.

On the Republican side, it appears that the state GOP is happy with losing half our delegates (wonder what that does to Giuliani's firewall?).

As a member of the FDP Affirmative Action Committee, I can inform you that NO decision has been made yet. most likely scenario is to stay with the 29th as binding.
However to the rank and file voters, when we select our delegates if at all, does not matter to them.

Thank you for clarifying - I hope, as we all do, that this situation resolves itself in the best fashion possible.

Though I will still never forgive the legislature for voting to move the primary to the 29th...
