NEW YORK -- The biggest question facing Rudy Giuliani's budding presidential bid has always been: How does a pro-choice, pro-gun control, pro-gay rights moderate woo the social conservatives that dominate Republican primaries?
But now some are asking another question: Does Giuliani even need social conservatives to win, given likely changes in the GOP primary schedule?
In a switch that could radically redraw the electoral map, California, New Jersey, Florida and Illinois -- all big, moderate states with small evangelical wings -- are expected to move their presidential primaries to Feb. 5, just two weeks after the first primary in New Hampshire.
