Rhode Island to Move 2008 Primary Date To Tomorrow!

From a report:

PROVIDENCE, RI—The Rhode Island legislature has passed a law moving the state’s presidential primary to tomorrow, forcing candidates from both parties to hastily revise their schedules and platforms.

“I love Rhode Island, always have—especially the people,” said Sen. John Edwards while being briefed on Rhode Island politics aboard a plane bound for Providence. “Just because it’s a small state doesn’t mean it’s not important. Frankly, I’ve always believed Rhode Island, or the ‘Ocean State,’ as I prefer to call it, should be much bigger—an issue on which my opponents have remained curiously silent.”

Former Gov. Mitt Romney announced his intention to release a 10-point plan addressing the issues that most deeply affect Rhode Islanders, as soon as he and his staff figure out what those issues are.

Sounds like at least two of the candidates are on top of this.
I wonder what the rest will do!



  1. How many electoral votes does Rhode Island get? 1/2?

    Honestly, how does Edwards propose to make Rhode Island bigger? Will he annex part of another state? I doubt that would go over well. Maybe he can finally get Canada annexed if he gets the job in ’08.

  2. I love how the Eastern US is actively seeking change in our broken electoral system.

    Last Tuesday, Maryland signed legislation stating that if other states join them, they will drop out of the electoral college all together…
