Iowa Gov. On 2012 Calendar: We Will Be First

February 26, 2011

Iowa Gov. Terry Branstad (R) says he won't allow the Hawkeye State to get bumped in the 2012 presidential nomination process.

"We will be first," Branstad told Hotline On Call Saturday at the National Governors Association Winter Meeting in Washington.

Florida's primary is currently scheduled for January 31, 2012. While the Republican National Committee wants the state to move its primary back to protect the early states of Iowa, New Hampshire, Nevada and South Carolina, state Republicans have come out in favor of holding the primary early, putting the shape of the national primary calendar up in the air.

If Florida does not move its primary date, it will take place ahead of the first in the nation Iowa Caucuses, tentatively slated for February 6, 2012.

But Branstad says Iowa will do what it takes to preserve its first in the nation status.

"We'll do what we did four years ago and we'll move it up," Branstad said.
