Republicans Weigh a Midwestern Primary

"The national Republican Party is considering a number of major changes to its presidential nominating process to avoid a repeat of the debacles of 2012, according to several party officials," David Freedlander reports.

"Most significantly, the party is considering holding a "Midwestern primary" featuring Great Lakes states such as Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Michigan, Wisconsin, and Minnesota that would come immediately after the votes in the traditional early primary states. Also being weighed and thought likely to be approved when the Republican National Committee meets in early 2014 is a plan to shorten the primary season considerably by holding the party's convention in July, almost as soon as the last primary ballots are cast."
