Feb. 19 presidential primary?



SB 1010, to move Florida's presidential primary to no later than Feb. 5, will be amended in the Senate Ethics and Elections Committee tomorrow to set the primary date for Feb. 19.

"That's not a consensus bill...It's very much only the start of this discussion,'' said sponsor Jeremy Ring. He wants an earlier primary, while committee chairman Lee Constantine is not yet sold on that.
