NH Secretary of State Bill Gardner does a VERY nice interview with Victory NH.
2nd Draft Noted: Hat tip to Harry Levine. The interview is detailed and an excellent primer on the Primary. We should have noted this in the 1st draft of our post Harry!
The Gardner quote that the Victory NH press release is trumpeting:
We’re absolutely determined to protect it, and we will. So if that means having our primary on a date other than the date the DNC would like us to, we’re going to have it at a time that does protect the tradition — even if that means it happens in 2007. This has happened before, and we’re going to honor the tradition, and that’s the way it’s going to be.
Of course, we have been hearing (and reporting) on the '07 Primary rumor for months.
