ABSTRACT
The article discusses the U.S. Republican Party's primary elections in preparation for the 2012 U.S. Presidential elections. Some political commentators are concerned that an extended season of primaries, funded by groups known as super Political Action Committees (super PACS), will discourage voters and tarnish the reputation of the Republican Party nominee. Details on changes in the rules governing the Republican primaries and U.S. campaign finance are presented.
