Good morning. State lawmakers and leading Democrats in New Hampshire say they will not comply with the demands of the Democratic National Committee and that New Hampshire will keep its first-in-the-nation status.

State Democratic Party chairman Ray Buckley wrote in a statement that, “Our greatest concern is how the DNC’s requirements and proposed punishments will hurt New Hampshire Democrats and President Biden.”

“New Hampshire Republicans have already begun capitalizing on the move for the 2024 election cycle, when everything from the state Legislature and governorship to the two battleground congressional seats and the presidency will be at stake,” Buckley continued. “We fear that if the president declines to campaign here that he will lose the first primary of 2024. We will continue to work with the DNC to avoid that outcome.”
