N.H. Primary Could Be December 6

New Hampshire secretary of state Bill Gardner issued a memo today threatening to hold the New Hampshire primary in the first half of December if Nevada doesn’t schedule its caucuses later than the current date, January 14.

“If Nevada does not accept a date of Tuesday, January 17th or later for its caucus, it leaves New Hampshire no choice but to consider December of this year,” Gardner wrote. “The dates of Tuesday, December 13th,and Tuesday, December 6th are realistic options, and we have logistics in place to make either date happen if needed. Candidates have been campaigning here, and elsewhere, for months, and it is about time we begin the next stage of the presidential nominating process.”
