The rollercoaster ride of a Republican presidential primary has left one prominent state GOP chairman suggesting the campaign might last until the party's national convention in late August.

He said such a scenario would make his state, irrelevant to the Republican race because of its April primary, suddenly important because of its large number of delegates.
