Ohio Presidential Primary to June 12

[Click to Enlarge]

The Ohio House passed and Governor John Kasich signed HB 318 on Friday. Each took action on the bill that creates a second 2012 primary election -- on June 12 -- for presidential and US House nominations a day after the Senate passed the amended version of the legislation. The move also shifts the Ohio presidential primary from a prime spot on Super Tuesday to almost the back of the line. Buckeye state voters will now go to the polls ahead of only Utah Republicans in the presidential nomination sequence.

For more on the reasoning behind the move, see FHQ's explanation from yesterday.

We'll have more on this and what it means later.
