New Hampshire Primary January 8, Earliest Ever
The New Hampshire primary date has finally been set: January 8, 2008.
New Hampshire set its earliest-ever presidential primary today, deciding on Jan. 8 and claiming its traditional spot as the nation’s first in a nomination season pushed almost to New Year’s Day of the election year.
Secretary of State William Gardner announced the date, ending months of speculation, including the possibility that the state might actually push its primary into December in order to keep its spot at the head of the line. Iowa, which chooses delegates with a caucus system, begins five days earlier on Jan. 3.
If I understand this correctly, we can expect six more weeks of winter.
