Gardner Protects Primary

Campaigns & Elections Beth LaMontagne has the story on Bill Gardner and the New Hampshire Primary.

"Secretary of State Bill Gardner holds the fate of the first-in-the-nation primary in his hands. According to New Hampshire law, the Secretary of State can decide when to schedule the state's primary, as long as it is at least seven days before any similar contest. Now that the Democratic Party has scheduled the Nevada caucus between Iowa and the New Hampshire primary, and there is a the large number of states creeping closer and closer to the Granite State's tentative Jan. 22 date, all eyes are on Gardner, wondering if he will thumb his nose at the national party leaders and schedule the election whenever he deems necessary."
