I made this point in comments a while ago, but I wanted to see what kind of response it got from the front page. Some Republicans and Democrats in Georgia are pushing for Georgia to join nearly 20 other states in front-loading their primaries on a Super Tuesday to end all previously known Super Tuesdays.
What do you guys think? Personally, I think there is value in holding Georgia’s primary on a more isolated day. If we have our primary the same day as California, New York, Florida and others, does anyone think any candidates (on either side) will spend a day (or a dime) in Georgia? I say let Super Tuesday happen: if it produces a nominee then Georgia wouldn’t have mattered anyway, if it doesn’t, having a later Georgia primary will cause the remaining candidates that are duking it out to flood our state. It will be great for the political parties.
But, some Republicans in the legislature are moving forward anyway with a plan to frontload Georgia’s primary, and they are certainly encouraged by some Democrats. Any thoughts on this matter, how does it affect both parties, and what do you think?
