A Vote From The Secret Service

Here's one group not crying over the speeded-up presidential primary process: the U.S. Secret Service. Instead of protecting more than a dozen candidates during the early months of the primary season, the agents might have just two candidates to oversee by the middle of February.

Why? A quickened primary process could cull the list of nominees that early. Agency officials say they had expected to have a crowd of candidates to protect through April, so this change could save them millions.
