Democrats’ plans to overhaul primary process hit a fresh snag

Source: The Guardian [UK]

“The Democratic party’s rationale for shaking up its presidential primary process was fairly straightforward …. Facing fuming New Hampshire officials, however, and a Georgia Republican party happy to meddle in Democrats’ plans, the Joe Biden-led effort to make things more equitable now looks increasingly in peril. New Hampshire, which has held the first presidential primary for decades, is proving itself particularly unyielding, raising the prospect of a rogue vote taking place in the state. … New Hampshire has a law that states that the New Hampshire primary should be held on the second Tuesday in March, or ‘on a date selected by the secretary of state which is seven days or more immediately preceding the date on which any other state shall hold a similar election.'” (01/17/23)
