The 2012 primary season kicks off with the Iowa caucuses on Tuesday, January 3, followed a week later by the New Hampshire primary on the 10th. Then South Carolina starts the southern battles eleven days later. February promises campaign commotion and controversy, leading up to Super Tuesday (and our Texas primaries) on March 6, followed by two months of steady strategy until California, Montana, New Jersey, New Mexico, and both Dakotas hold their primary elections on June 5th.
The Houston Seminar is proud to present Richard Murray’s incisive insider’s perspective every step of the way as the American people determine which candidates will arrive at their parties’ summer conventions to stand for nomination to lead the final fall campaigns in the battle for the presidency. A plausible prediction about the 2012 primary season? It will be interesting!
