Same-State 2016 Contenders Could Challenge Donors

"The potential for a Cruz-Perry showdown in 2016 already is causing some anxiety among Texas' Republican Party leaders, fundraisers and donors, many of whom like both men and are concerned about being pressured to support just one," Reuters reports.

"Similar scenarios are unfolding to lesser degrees in Wisconsin and Florida, states that also have two potential contenders for the party's presidential nomination -- Gov. Scott Walker and Rep. Paul Ryan in Wisconsin, and former Gov. Jeb Bush and Sen. Marco Rubio in Florida."

"The unusual number of states with multiple potential candidates poses a particular challenge for party operatives looking for hints about who might emerge by early 2014 as leading contenders for the White House."
