Florida GOP boss pushes for an early primary

In a letter being sent to Republican executive committees and grass roots leaders in every county, Chairman Jim Greer urges them to call senators of both parties and ask them to follow the House lead on the early primary despite the threat of losing delegates to the national convention.

"In the past, Republicans and Democrats who have sought their party's nomination have not been forced to answer some of the questions that are most important to Florida's voters," Greer wrote.
