LAS VEGAS (AP) - Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval says he is working on a compromise deal with national Republican leaders over the state's mid-January caucus date.
Several Republican presidential candidates and the state of New
Hampshire are furious over Nevada having scheduled its contest for
Jan. 14. They argue that would wedge New Hampshire's primary too close to Nevada's voting and Iowa's caucuses, which are slated for Jan. 3.
Party leaders in Nevada are considering changing the date.
Sandoval told reporters in Nevada on Thursday that he hopes GOP leaders can find a solution that will equally benefit Nevada, the candidates and the Republican Party.
New Hampshire officials have said they will hold the nation's first primary in December if Nevada doesn't delay its contest.
