New Hampshire Primary to Stay Put?

The Primary Source at the Boston Globe quoted New Hampshire Secretary of State, Bill Gardner, as saying:

"Like we have before we are going to honor the Iowa law. I hope [Iowa] will honor ours as well."

The implication there is that the state is not looking into jumping ahead of the Iowa caucuses to counter the rush to February 5. Much of that depends not on Iowa though, but other states threatening to further upend the traditional beginning to the presidential nomination process. I say this with the South Carolina Republican Party's potential move in mind. Should that move into 2007 come to fruition, New Hampshire would certainly not stand by idly and allow its traditional position to be swiped.

Thanks to The Caucus at the New York Times for the link to the report.
