Interesting article on the 2nd contest in this year's primary (it's not New Hampshire).
Romney's campaign has one of the largest on-the-ground efforts, according to observers in the state. The former Massachusetts governor and head of the 2002 Winter Olympics in nearby Salt Lake City is organizing a large grassroots campaign in the state, says Matt Micheli, one of two state coordinators there.
This is a good move on Romney's part because this primary despite being ignored nationally right now is going to be a huge media event once all the votes are in.
Which sets Romney up for consecutive wins.
- Iowa: Jan. 3
- Wyoming: Jan. 5
- New Hampshire: Jan. 8
- Michigan: Jan. 15
- Nevada: Jan. 19 (also South Carolina GOP)
- South Carolina: (Democrats) Jan. 26
- Florida: Jan. 29
