Presidential primary season?
« on: October 20, 2006, 02:58:59 am »

When will the 2008 presidential primary be held in NH?  And when will the candidates start campaigning in earnest?

I know some of the would-be candidates are already speaking at various places in the state because I've seen them on C-SPAN, but I'm wondering when things will really start to heat up.  If the timing works out, I'd like to make the move before then.

When will the 2008 presidential primary be held in NH?

Thanks to the Democrats trying to insert primaries earlier, combined with NH's law _requiring_ having the first, we still don't know exactly.  It'll be very early 2008, most likely, but could be as early as late 2007.  The Secretary of State hasn't set the date yet.

Make the move as soon as possible, there will be plenty to do...

Thanks, Seth.  Unfortunately I have committments that will keep me here until mid-2007 and possibly into the fall of 2007.  But I'd like to be in NH some time before the primary, so I'll have to work something out.

Every time the season comes around, the bag limit always seems to be zero.  And you can't find anybody that will sell you a tag anyway.

Four Democrats mulling Presidential bids are in the state this weekend: Wesley Clark, Evan Bayh, Christopher Dodd and John Kerry. They will attend events from Plymouth to Nashua and Portsmouth.

New York Gov. George Pataki, who has planted $56,000 in seed money with Republican state Senate candidates since summer, plans visits here on Oct. 30 and Nov. 4 to pump up his Presidential aspirations.

Pataki will hit a Portsmouth event a week from tomorrow, then head off on what his camp calls a seven-state barnstorming tour. Stops in Michigan, New York, Florida, Iowa, South Carolina and Delaware are scheduled, along with a return to New Hampshire on Nov. 4.

New York Republicans may be glad to hear Pataki plans a visit there. State Senate leader Joseph Bruno criticized him last week, saying that having "the governor in an exit mode" isn't helping the local GOP. All its major candidates lag in fundraising and polls.

Pataki spokesperson Alicia Preston said her guy "has done an enormous amount" to help with fundraising in his home state and across the country.

An example of the action you missing out on...

Yesterday (Saturday), a family moved to Manchester, and were unpacked (via a bucket brigade) in the pouring rain, but quickly.

The LPNH convention was held, most of the day, attracting 50+ people, including a Representative and a Senator as lunch speakers, a former Supreme Court judge as the dinner speaker, and 2 presidential candidates (one an announced and campaigning Democrat) already on the campaign trail

A halloween party was held, attracting 40+ movers and locals, partying till the wee hours of the morning.

10am Sunday: another moving couple arrived in Manchester (mere blocks away from the first), and was also unpacked by a very large group of folks, including some currently running for Representative (who could/should have been out campaigning.... but community counts!). 

A Second Amendment Sisters potluck was held, attracting 20+ people, asking questions of one of the foremost guns rights lawyers in the country.

If you aren't here, you are missing out.
Heck, you can be here, and still have so much to do, you'll be missing out on somethings, as there just isn't enough time to do it all.

hey, whatever it takes to encourage you slowpokes.  Did I forget to mention the party had people dressed up like this:

DuctTape girl just finished Coast Guard Basic Training
The Pirate is the new 1st District Chair of the Libertarian Party of New Hampshire.
I won't even post a picture of my wife's costume.  ::)
