DNC Grants New Hampshire Waiver

From The New Hampshire Democratic Party:

The Rules and ByLaws sub-committee of the full Democratic National Committee voted this morning to support New Hampshire's "first-in-the-nation" status. With a vote of 28-2, the committee granted New Hampshire a waiver to hold its primary on January 8th, 2008, the date recently set by Secretary of State Bill Gardner. Though there was talk of sanctioning New Hampshire, this vote signified that the committee stands in solidarity with the Granite State. New Hampshire will travel to Denver, Colorado in the summer of 2008 with all 30 of its voting delegates and 4 alternates.

Michigan's request for a waiver was denied by a vote of 28-2 despite testimony from MI Chair Mark Brewer and DNC Member Debbie Dingle.
