While You Weren't Looking...

December 16, 2011

We've said it before, and we'll say it again: Rules matter. Pay attention and take advantage, or face the consequences of being unprepared.

Now, just two weeks and change before the Iowa caucuses, the rules of the presidential campaign are changing again. An agreement in the Ohio legislature has moved the state's presidential primary to March 6, sweetening the pot by adding yet another 66 delegates. And as Mitt Romney's campaign starts publicly talking about a long, drawn-out campaign, it's increasingly likely that those delegates will matter.

Ohio had planned to hold its presidential primary in June, making it all but certain the primary race would be over by the time Buckeye voters saw a ballot. But after agreeing on a new redistricting plan on Wednesday, the legislature consolidated the presidential and Congressional primary elections to a single day.

That means Ohio will join Alaska (27 delegates), Georgia (76), Idaho (32), Massachusetts (41), North Dakota (28), Oklahoma (43), Tennessee (58), Texas (155), Vermont (17) and Virginia (50) on the biggest delegate day of the year. Another way to look at it: Ohio will send more delegates to the convention than Iowa (28), New Hampshire (12) and South Carolina (25) combined.
