    St. Louis Beacon - Missouri Republican Party sticks with its plan to ignore Feb. 7 primary

    In a nutshell they are doing this to avoid penalties from the GOP for having the primary before March 1st.


    Here is an interesting snippet.

    UPDATE: A Republican National Committee spokesman said Wednesday that, contrary to the talk, the RNC does plan to follow through with punishing those states that violate the rules by holding their primaries or caucuses too early. So far, five states -- New Hampshire, South Carolina, Florida, Arizona and Michigan -- are slated to lose half their delegates, said RNC spokesman Ruan Tronovitch.
