An insult too all N.H. residents

By Staff | Aug 6, 2022

According to a Politico article early this week, New Hampshire’s status of hosting the first-in-the-nation presidential primary may be in jeopardy.

Although nothing new – talks have swirled before, especially this year, about a shift in the primary schedule – it does seem voices are getting much louder about making said change.

The article, indicating inside sources, said Biden recommended the Democratic National Committee hold off announcing until after the November mid-term election the sequencing order for 2024 primary states.

It might also be, the Politico article stated, because the president has, “on more than one occasion quizzed people in his orbit about the possibility of Delaware going early, even first,” replacing New Hampshire.

Gov. Chris Sununu said during a press briefing last week that New Hampshire has earned the seat as first in the nation in voting for president.

From election integrity to high voter turnout, Sununu said, the state has it all.

“To think that well, ‘any state can do it, I’ll just put it in my own state,’ it is an insult. It is an insult to all the voters of New Hampshire, frankly, that the Democratic Party thinks it is so easy to do this that it can go anywhere,” Sununu said.

The Politico article indicated there are at least 17 states that have indicated an interest in hosting the first-in-the-nation primary.

Sununu is right to be upset, and indeed it is an insult to all New Hampshire residents. This state has long been the home to the first-in-the-nation, and we must fight like hell – if necessary – to ensure we don’t lose it.
