New Hampshire has always been a forward-thinking state when it comes to the electoral process, and in the midst of the 2020 election, they’ve just made a move that will shape the nation’s political landscape.
Officials in the Granite State recently announced that the New Hampshire Presidential Primary will take place as originally scheduled on February 11th, 2020, defying the Democratic National Committee (DNC) ruling that all states must wait until March 1st to hold their primaries. The ruling, which had been seen by some as an attempt to protect candidates from large and diverse states such as California and Texas, would have had a profound effect on the race for the White House.
However, state representatives in New Hampshire make their own laws, and they decided to uphold the date that had previously been established. They argue that the state’s long history as the “First in the Nation” primary is an honor that should not be taken away.
The decision has raised eyebrows from both the political and financial structure in America. The Democratic Party has remained largely silent on the issue, and some fear that the situation may cause further disruptions to the 2020 election season.
For the voters in New Hampshire, the decision to stand up to the DNC is seen as a huge victory, and many believe that the state will once again be the center of attention during the election. While the impact of the ruling on the national election is yet to be seen, it’s already clear that New Hampshire is sending a strong message – that the political will of its people can and will be respected.
