Republican National Committee Likely to Pass Rules Penalizing Presidential Candidates who Campaign in States with Too-early Primaries

According to this Washington Post story, a group appointed by the Republican National Committee is meeting to write new rules for the party’s presidential contest. The group will probably pass a new rule, penalizing Republican presidential candidates who campaign in states that hold presidential primaries that violate party rules.

In the past, both major parties have tried to penalize the state parties in states with too-early presidential primaries, by depriving those states of some of their delegates to the national convention.

The new group will also set new rules for the number and timing of presidential debates for Republicans in primary season.
