New Hampshire: House CD 2: Wesley Michael "Wes" Sonner, Jr. (Republican) - apparently not a candidate.

Utah: Senate Class 3: Brian E. Kamerath (Write-in [Libertarian]) - added.

West Virginia: Senate Class 1: Senator Robert C. Byrd (Democratic) - passed away 28 June 2010. Governor Joe Manchin, III (Democratic) will soon appoint a temporary replacement Senator to serve from the time of the appointment through the November 2012 General Election. There will be 2 elections for this Senate Class 1 seat-- both held on the date of the General Election- 6 November 2012. The candidate who wins the 6 November 2012 special election will serve from November 2012 until January 2013- about a month and a half. The candidate who wins the regular 6 November 2012 election will serve from January 2013 until January 2019- the normal 6 year term. Reference: West Virginia Secretary of State Natalie Tennant's Statement On Procedure To Fill Vacant Senate Seat. The executive director of the West Virginia Republican Party declared his party is "examining its legal options" after it was announced that there would be no 2010 special election to fill this vacant seat.

Senator ROBERT BYRD (D-West Virginia) passes away at the age of 92
by TheGreenPapers.com Staff

We extend our condolences to the family and friends of Senator Robert C. Byrd (Democratic, West Virginia, U.S. Senate Class 1) who passed away today at the age of 92. He was first elected in 1958.

Regarding West Virginia U.S. Senate vacancies: If the vacancy occurs less than 2 years and 6 months before the end of the term, the Governor appoints someone to fill the unexpired term and there is no election. If the vacancy occurs 2 years and 6 months or more before the end of the term, the Governor appoints someone to serve until the unexpired term is filled at the next General Election.; [West Virginia Code §3-10-3].

Since it is just over 2 years and 6 months before what would have been the end of his term (3 January 2013), a special election would be called by Governor Joe Manchin, III. Note that this coming Saturday, 3 July 2010, is the 2 year, 6 month mark. If the Governor declares the seat vacant before Saturday there would be a special election. It is unclear what would happen if the Governor does not declare seat vacant by Saturday.

The Partisan Composition of the U.S. Senate is now 56 Democrats, 1 Independent and 1 Independent Democrat (both caucus with the Democrats), 41 Republicans, and 1 vacant seat.

Utah Primary

Polling hours are 7:00a MDT (1300 UTC) to 8:00p MDT (0200 UTC).

Nomination note: In UTAH, where a single candidate has already received the support of more than 50% to 60% of the delegates at the Party Convention (the percentage itself is set by the Party), that candidate receives the Party's nomination.

Otherwise, the top two vote getters at the Convention advance to the Primary; re: the 2010 UTAH Primary, there are only two such races being covered by The Green Papers:

  • U.S. Senate, Rep: Tim Bridgewater (57.28%) vs. Mike Lee (42.72%). Lee won the primary with 51%.
  • U.S. House: CD 2, Dem: incumbent Congressman James David "Jim" Matheson (55%) vs. Claudia Wright (45%). Matheson won the primary with 68%.

Links to coverage of the DNC's Rules and Bylaws Committee Sat 22 May 2010 meeting
by Tony Roza

Not much new to report.

Except for bonus delegates, the math for allocating the pledged delegates in 2012 will be the similar to what it was in 2008 so these pledged delegate numbers should be close. The Unpledged delegate allocation has yet to be determined.

The window for 2012 will likely start 1 February for Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina, and Nevada; and Tuesday 7 March 2010 for the remaining jurisdictions. States are encouraged to cluster their primaries (group multiple states geographically). There was talk of adding additional early states in 2016.

Discussion of the timing window, bonus delegates, and the number of unpledged delegates (about 19% of the delegate votes in 2008 were unpledged) will be continued at the 9-10 July 2010 meeting of the Rules and Bylaws Committee.

RNC Selects Tampa-St. Petersburg for their 2012 Convention
by Tony Roza

On 12 May 2010, the Republican National Committee announced that their Site Selection Committee recommends that the 40th Republican National Convention be held in Tampa-St. Petersburg, Florida. The Convention will be held Monday 27 August through Thursday 30 August 2012. The RNC will vote on this recommendation at its Summer Meeting this coming August.

RNC 2012 Presidential Primaries: IA, NH, SC and NV go in Feb, others can start in March
by Tony Roza

The Republican Temporary Delegate Selection Committee (TDSC) has released additional information about their proposals for the 2012 Presidential Nomination cycle. Let's start with the timing--

No primary, caucus, or convention to elect, select, allocate, or bind delegates to the national convention shall occur prior to the first Tuesday in March in the year in which a national convention is held. Except Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina, and Nevada may begin their processes at any time on or after February 1 in the year in which a national convention is held."

Looking back, by the beginning of March 2008, 39 states and territories had- in some way- begun their processes (this number could be even higher if minor activities are counted). These states encompass 69% of the National Convention delegates. Details: 2008 Chronological Cumulative Allocation of Delegates, 2008 Weekly Delegate Distribution and Availability, and 2008 Presidential Primaries, Caucuses, and Conventions Chronologically.

Based on the laws and rules in effect for 2008, our 2012 estimated schedule is here: 2012 Presidential Primaries, Caucuses, and Conventions Chronologically. Needless to say, the new proposal will require significant change in many states.

In addition, states beginning before April will be required to allocate delegates proportionally (we do not have a copy of the actual policy). Back in 2008, each state was allowed to use their own allocation method-- and they did-- and most were not proportional. Details: Presidential Primaries 2008 Republican Delegate Selection and Voter Eligibility.

This proposal aligns the Republican timing window with the proposed Democratic window and both parties will allow Iowa, Nevada, New Hampshire, and South Carolina to start first. Democratic Change Commission's Recommendations for the 2012 Presidential Nominating Process - Adopted Wednesday 30 December 2009.

It also requires proportional allocation in the early states.

The proposal, which should be made public shortly, will be submitted to the Republican National Committee for consideration at the August summer meeting in Detroit.
