2008 race calls for new strategies
by UPI

WASHINGTON - An increase in the number of early primaries for the 2008 election is presenting new challenges for candidates seeking the U.S. presidency.

Democrat and Republican hopefuls are being forced to make hard choices because of the dizzying number of primaries and caucuses scheduled for late January and early February, The Washington Post reported Thursday.

In 2004 nine states had primaries before Feb 5 compared to at least 22 scheduled for 2008.

"This type of campaign has never been waged," Mike DuHaime, campaign manager for former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani, told the Post. "No campaign in the past has ever been in the position where you have this many primaries in this many states that are this expensive."

Last week both Giuliani and fellow Republican candidate Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., decided not to attend this summer's Ames Iowa Straw Poll.

Democratic frontrunner Sen. Hillary Clinton, D-N.Y., reportedly received a strategy memo urging her to skip the first-in-the-nation Iowa caucuses next January, concentrating instead on states like Florida, New Hampshire and South Carolina, the Post said.
