LAS VEGAS — Nevada Republican leaders say they won't change their caucus date after several presidential candidates announced they would boycott the state's presidential contest on Jan. 14.
Nevada GOP Chairwoman Amy Tarkanian says New Hampshire should urge candidates to boycott Florida, which sent the presidential calendar in disarray when Republican leaders there decided to jump ahead of all the early contest states and hold their primary on Jan. 31. Nevada followed by moving its original Feb. 18 date up.
Nevada GOP Treasurer David Buell said Friday that the decision from former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman and other candidates to boycott Nevada was "laughable" because the candidates were not expected to perform well here.
Huntsman said Friday he will not attend next week's GOP debate in Las Vegas.
