The New Hampshire House approved a resolution Thursday in support of the state’s first-in-the-nation presidential primary

The New Hampshire House approved a resolution Thursday in support of the state’s first-in-the-nation presidential primary before advancing a bill opponents said would threaten it. The nonbinding resolution came a week after the Democratic National Committee approved a plan to revoke the guaranteed first-place spots in the presidential nominating calendar long held by the Iowa caucus and New Hampshire primary. Noting that New Hampshire has withstood previous challenges, House lawmakers affirmed their commitment to the primary tradition and said candidates are well-served by campaigning in a state with an engaged citizenry and “well run, free and fair elections.”
