‘In My Heart Of Hearts, No’: New Hampshire Dems React To Potential Biden Re-Election Bid | Eastern North Carolina Now

    President Joe Biden isn't a popular guy amongst some New Hampshire Democrats - at least in part because the party changed its primary schedule and knocked the Granite State from its "first in the nation" (FITN) perch at the president's request, according to a former New Hampshire governor.

    New Hampshire voters of all stripes - who take immense pride in historically hosting the first primary for both major parties - are upset over the Democratic Party's decision to give South Carolina the honor of "FITN" in 2024. Due to that change, Biden could lose the state's four electoral votes in the general election, according to ex-New Hampshire Governor John Lynch (D).

    "It could cost Democrats the presidency," Lynch told the Associated Press. "Republicans won't let voters forget. They'll hammer the Democrats on this."

    Steve Shurtleff, a former speaker of the New Hampshire House and current Democratic state representative, is also gunshy about Biden's potential re-election campaign.

    "In my heart of hearts, no," Shurtleff told the media outlet when asked if he wants Biden to run in 2024. "I think a lot of people just don't want to say it."

    Biden has not announced his re-election campaign officially, but he has said that it is his "intention" to run again. In February, the Democratic National Committee voted to remove New Hampshire from first in line.

    Why? Well, apparently the state is too white.

    "This calendar does what is long overdue," DNC chair Jaime Harrison told NBC News at the time. "It puts Black voters at the front of the process in South Carolina. It keeps Nevada, where Latinos have been building power ... and it adds Michigan, the heartland, where unions built the middle class of this nation. And Georgia, the forefront of the new South."

    Harrison claimed that the new calendar reflects America's racial makeup.

    "The Democratic Party looks like America," Harrison claimed, "and so does this proposal."

    The move also could block any would-be Biden challengers from mounting momentum. In 2020, Biden finished first in the South Carolina primary yet failed to crack the top four in New Hampshire.

    In New Hampshire, Laconia Democratic Committee Chairman Eric Hoffman claimed that his state would prefer to see a change.

    "The party kind of lined up because he was the nominee, but he obviously wasn't our first four choices," Hoffman said. "People would prefer to see a change."

    Right now, Biden has only one challenger - self-help author Marianne Williamson. Yet, many have speculated that Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) may hop in the race. In 2020, he trounced Biden in New Hampshire's primary by more than 50,000 votes.

After one full year of the Biden /Harris Administration: Does Joe Biden have the intellectual capacity, and, or the energy to lead the United States of America through the mess that he predominately created ... in just one year?

In the face of a known scandal finally being revealed by the corrupt Legacy Media regarding Joe Biden, his Mishandling of Classified Documents and his long history of Influence Peddling to our Foreign Adversaries for Personal and Familial Profit: What do you believe the outcome will be in America's Leftist practice of a Two Tiered Justice System?
  Nothing will happen since the Democratic Socialist Left is corrupt to the core, and their non patriot ambitions are only the control of power.
  Justice WILL be served, but NOT without a tremendous fight by those willing to save the Republic.
  Why can't everyone else understand that the Left is special because we care so much for our own, especially the well being of the president and his family, especially Hunter.
  What difference does it make; I am a product of a failed public education system.

Among the many other lackluster performance standards by the Biden Administration - the most recent, allowing the Chinese Spy Balloon unfettered access to the skies above this Sovereign Republic - Joe Biden's foreign policy is considered by most true experts to be mediocre to abysmal at best. If one were to give a fair assessment of the quality of this apex duty of this Executive Branch: What would be your opinion of the Biden Administration's Foreign Policy initiatives and, or obvious faux pas?
  President Biden is a Foreign Policy expert of consummate skill just like his brother, Jim, and his son, Hunter.
  America's First Idiot President is corruptly committed to making the World far less safe, while surrendering OUR United States of America's sovereignty whenever, wherever possible.
  Mr. Biden is MY President because I pay close attention to only what rewards me, thus demanding as little sacrifice as is my nature to offer, or shrug.
