Nevada Republicans Schedule Jan. 14 Caucuses

A couple of headlines grabbed my attention earlier this morning at Union Station while waiting for my train to Philadelphia.

Florida Sen. Marco Rubio bluntly said at a political forum here in Washington, D.C., late on Wednesday, Oct. 4, that he would not seek the Republican vice presidential nomination in 2012. The Associated Press quoted the Cuban American lawmaker as saying he did not run for the Senate "to have a launching pad for another job."

In other news, Nevada Republicans announced late on Wednesday that they will hold their caucuses on Jan. 14. This move could prompt New Hampshire officials to schedule the first-in-the-nation primary as early as Jan. 3, while Iowa Republicans could hold their first-in-the-nation caucuses before the end of the year.

Stay tuned!
