Still No Michigan Primary On Jan. 15.

Today, an appeals court upheld a lower court's ruling invalidating the Jan. 15 primary.....

So: two possible courses of action.

(1) -- the state legislature passes and the governor signs a bill setting Jan. 15 as the date but with a modified provision for voting lists. This would have to happen next week.

(2) -- the parties could choose to hold their own contests... the Dems might hold a caucus and the GOP might hold a convention. Depending upon the dates of those contests, the DNC and RNC could sanction them -- or penalize the parties for scheduling them.

Until Michigan settles on a date or dates, New Hampshire's Secretary of State won't schedule the primary...although if Michigan dawdles, Sec. Gardner's hand will be forced.
