GOP Threatens to Strip New Hampshire of Status

In an effort to avoid Christmas in Iowa, Republicans "are pressuring New Hampshire Secretary of State Bill Gardner to put his state's primary late enough to allow Iowa's caucus to be in January, and are threatening the state with the loss of its favored status as the first-in-the-nation primary if he doesn't do so," The Hill reports.

"Gardner, who is not affiliated with a political party, has the sole authority to set New Hampshire's primary date. A spokesperson in his office said he has no plans to make a decision before next week."
