(Las Vegas, NV) — Saturday’s flawed Republican presidential caucus is leading some GOP lawmakers to consider switching to a traditional primary system. State Republican Party official Carol Howell tells the “Sun” she has collected hundreds of signatures from members who want to abolish the caucus system of choosing a presidential nominee. A bill could be introduced in next year’s Legislature to set up a primary system. Turnout for Saturday’s caucus was low, and the process was plagued by voter confusion and ballot counting problems. Mitt Romney was not certified as the caucus winner by the state Republican party until early yesterday morning.
