The race is on...again. Despite the efforts of the Republican National Committee and the designated early primary states, Florida has jumped out in front to set its primary on January 31. The state wants some of the respect (and leverage) that supposedly comes from being an early primary state. But Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina and Nevada insist they will go first. Which means the first votes for the 2012 presidential election could be cast in 2011. So what will happen with the Nevada caucuses?
