Plan Could Keep Kentucky From Being Left Out In Presidential Decision

The outcome in Iowa Caucus is considered a determining factor in choosing the next President.
With Kentucky's primary not being held until May many feel the Commonwealth is left out.
If Secretary of State Trey Grayson has his way 2008 will be the last year the Commonwealth feels that way.
Grayson is proposing the primaries follow a rotating regional plan. Under that plan, the country would be divided into four regions. Each region would rotate who would go first by election year, and Iowa and New Hampshire would stay as is.
Grayson says the regional plan is just a idea at this point and even if it is accepted there are a lot of hoops to jump through before it can be implemented.

    Don't fall for this story. This is a way for the Kentucky major political figures to get looked at on the big stage. This is a way for the State Legislature to make their move toward the US Congress. It is also a way for people close to the politicians to make a lot of money as advertising in newspapers and on TV and radio. There is also transportation, hotels, banguets, signs and the list is endless but the small Kentuckian doesn't get a thing. One thing the aveage tax payer does get is to pay for another election which cost millions of dollars. Please check it out. Who wins and who loses? Say NO to moving the election date.

    I think it is a government conspiracy. Think about it. Iowa grows corn, New Hampshire freezes the corn...hmmmmm...
