We Want Hillary, Says Florida GOP Chairman

January 9th, 2008 by flanews

Florida GOP Chairman Jim Greer says Florida’s decision to move its primary to January 29th from March is already paying dividends with wide-open contests in both parties.  On the Democratic side, Illinois Senator Barack Obama won the Iowa caucuses and New York Senator Hillary Clinton won New Hampshire’s primary.  Iowa Republicans favored former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee, while Arizona Senator John McCain won in New Hampshire.  Greer says many Republicans are hoping Clinton will be Democratic nominee, because of her high negatives.

“They’re going to fight it out tooth and nail,” Greer said.  “I often say, I think Edwards is a little bit of a sleeper.  I’m curious to see where he plays out.  But at the end of the day, I think she’s going to be the party’s nominee.”

Michigan is the next state up in the Presidential nominating race.  Voters will head to the polls there on January 15th.
