STATEMENT: NH Federal Delegation Statement on DNC Primary Calendar Vote

CONCORD, NH — Today, the New Hampshire Democratic Party released a statement from Senator Jeanne Shaheen, Senator Maggie Hassan, Congresswoman Annie Kuster, and Congressman Chris Pappas following the DNC's vote on the 2024 primary calendar:

“The vote by the Democratic National Committee in Philadelphia is not the last word on the 2024 Presidential primary calendar. No party committee gave New Hampshire the first-in-the-nation primary. Granite Staters created this process to put the power in voters’ hands and give every candidate a fair shot, no matter their cash-on-hand or status within the party. New Hampshire adds value to the nominating process, and while President Biden and the DNC continue to push a plan of political convenience, they will not be successful in the end. We will continue to work together as a delegation and with state leaders to protect the primary and make sure New Hampshire’s law is followed. No matter what party powerbrokers or those in Washington think, New Hampshire will once again host our first-in-the-nation contest as we have done for more than a century.”
