Democrats are desperate to avoid a catastrophe in New Hampshire after Joe Biden pushed for a change to the Dem primary system to reward South Carolina for getting him elected in 2020.
New Hampshire Dems are snubbing Biden over the move which may result in Joe getting left off the ballot for the primary and giving Robert Kennedy the momentum he needs. Kennedy is polling surprisingly well, and no one likes Biden, so all Kennedy needs is one win to make him a serious contender. And Biden’s bungling may hand him that.
“If there’s any opportunity for this to get resolved by New Hampshire having more time, all of us will say, ‘Give New Hampshire more time,’” said labor leader Randi Weingarten.
“In states where state legislatures have refused to comply with the party rules, the state parties have run primaries that are conducted by the party,” said James Roosevelt, Jr., co-chair of the DNC’s Rules and Bylaws Committee, adding that New Hampshire Democrats are “aware that that is an alternative.”
But New Hampshire Dems are still furious with Biden for changing the primary schedule and won’t help him.
“We can’t change our laws and that’s that. We’re hosting the first primary,” said Ray Buckley, chair of the New Hampshire Democratic Party.
He continued: “The president can decide if he wants to put his name on the ballot.
“Where would I rent 2,000 voting machines?
“Hire 1,500 people to run the polls?
“Rent 300 accessible voting locations? Hire security?
“Print 500,000 ballots. Process 30,000 absentee ballots.”
Dem Rep Ro Khanna said:
“Let me be very clear: It would be political malpractice to strip New Hampshire of delegates, disenfranchising Granite State Democrats for a decision out of their control.
“We all know these four electoral votes are going to matter for the presidency.”
Sen. Jeanne Shaheen (D-N.H.), said:
“We are not going to leave New Hampshire and the primary to the Republicans.
“I don’t care what the Democratic National Committee says.”
