Image via WikipediaThe Land of Lincoln doesn’t have a lot of influence in the Party of Lincoln.Also, Illinois traditionally holds its presidential primary in March, after the must-win states of Iowa, New Hampshire and South Carolina. (The 2008 primary was in February, but that was to help Barack Obama on the Democratic side.) Sen. Mark Kirk thinks changes in the GOP’s nominating process will finally make Illinois relevant in choosing a presidential candidate. The party is switching from a winner-take all system to a system in which delegates are awarded proportionally. Also, Mitt Romney and Newt Gingrich are tied in the polls.
