Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
So it is the states and not the parties that organise primaries? Interesting. Does that mean that it is the states that pay for it too?

Is there then any formal reason why only two parties gets primaries organised by the states? Or to put it another way, can other parties get primaries and ge3t the states to pay for it? Has any party tried?

Also, is the the state legislatures as opposed to the parties themselves that decide to shift the calendar?
