RNC Seeks to Gain Control Over Primary Calendar

"For Republicans yearning for a less front-loaded, more orderly presidential nominating contest, the long national nightmare may be over," Beth Reinhard reports.

The RNC "is poised this week to enact its toughest crackdown yet on states that try to infringe on the special, first-in-the-nation status afforded to Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina, and Nevada. Florida."

First Read: "Of course, many a national party has tried to dictate to the early states when they should hold their contests and never have they succeeded. Usually, the early states end up earlier than requested. Hard to imagine that pattern doesn't hold."

Meanwhile, Time reports the search is underway for a site for the 2016 GOP convention.
