Arizona Senator John McCain is using the debate of a December primary, to raise money.
Last week, Portsmouth State Representative Jim Splaine wrote an op-ed piece that argued in favor of holding the New Hampshire primary in December.
Today, McCain issued a fundraising appeal that said, "The bottom line is: there is a possibility that New Hampshire may move up its "First in the Nation" primary from early January to early December. That's one full month earlier than anyone is currently planning on."
The letter urges supporters to donate money and states that "The most effective way we can prepare is to put 100% of our New Hampshire budget in the bank right now."
