RENO (AP) — Nevada Republicans have decided to move up their presidential caucuses to stay ahead of Florida’s newly scheduled Jan. 31 primary, a move that will cost half of their delegates to the national convention.

Executive board members voted Saturday night to hold the caucuses sometime in January instead of February, saying it was worth the price to have more influence on the nomination as an early voting state.

The lone dissenter was National Committee-woman Heidi Smith, who noted Nevada still would have been the first state in the West to vote by sticking to a February date.

No date was immediately set for the Nevada caucuses.

Nevada, Iowa, New Hampshire and South Carolina are the only states allowed to go before March 6 under Republican and Democratic party rules.
