Will Nevada Republicans cave to pressure to move caucus

After Nevada Republicans set January 14, 2012 as the date for the party's presidential caucus it raised the eyebrows of New Hampshire Secretary of State, Bill Gardner. State law in New Hampshire says events similar to the state's presidential primary have to wait a full seven days before they can be held. Nevada's January 14 date didn't sit well with New Hampshire so the state threatened to push presidential primary voting to as early as December of this year. Now, after initially saying they wouldn't budge on the date, Nevada Republicans appear to be giving way to pressure from New Hampshire and the Republican National Committee. So will they capitulate?
We talk with Review Journal Columnist, Steve Sebelius about what the Nevada GOP might do. We also talk with a political science professor who lives in Iowa, an early caucus state, and is also a part time New Hampshire Resident.
