KATHY SULLIVAN STATEMENT ON DNC RULES AND BYLAWS COMMITTEE RECOMMENDED NOMINATING CALENDAR
The following is a statement from New Hampshire Democratic Party Chairman Kathy Sullivan on the DNC Rules and Bylaws Committee recommended calendar.
"The short sighted action taking by the DNC Rules and Bylaws Committee exacerbates the current problem of frontloading in the primary calendar. In addition to ensuring that the Democratic Party will have a nominee by February 5th after only a handful of states have voted, the committee trampled on the grassroots tradition of the New Hampshire primary. Instead of going door to door and meeting the voters face to face, the candidates will spend millions of dollars on television advertising."
