"I believe this is one of the most important issues facing our democracy: how we choose our president during the nominating process...We have a process that disenfranchises a lot of voters all across the country."
Trey Grayson, Kentucky Secretary of State
"As Iowa's Secretary of State, I'm pleased after thorough discussion and debate there was a consensus among individuals that change needs to take place to restore order to the nomination calendar. The process - unlike in this year's election - needs to start later. More importantly, I praise this bi-partisan group's recognition of the importance of maintaining the traditional roles of both Iowa and New Hampshire as first-in-the-nation."
Michael A. Mauro, Iowa Secretary of State
