That may be True
2008 Election Date Changed
This news item was the last straw for the Federal Election Commission:
SACRAMENTO, Calif. — California jolted the time-tested presidential primary schedule Thursday, moving up its 2008 contest to Feb. 5 and setting the stage for a potentially decisive one-day, mega-primary across the country.
The Commission is now acting to change the general election date to May 5. 2008. In its statement to Congress, released to news organizations, the Commission noted that by February 2008, presidential and other candidates will have been campaigning for over a year. The nominations for President for both parties will have been determined by February 5th so there is no need to wait and endure another eight months of campaigning.
