Election 101: What's the Republican primary calendar for 2012?

Here are the ins and outs of the road to winning the Republican Party presidential nomination.

2. The 'Tweens'

Six states will hold Republican primaries or caucuses after the first five states and before Super Tuesday on March 6, when 11 states will hold their contests.

Most of these six leap-frogged to the front half of the line this time, in a bid to have more influence over the GOP's nominating process. After Nevadans caucus on Feb. 4, here's the Republican lineup.

Feb. 4-11: Maine caucuses

Feb. 7: Colorado (caucus) and Minnesota (caucus)

Feb. 28: Arizona (primary) and Michigan (primary)

March 3: Washington (caucus)
