WASHINGTON – Republican presidential hopeful Jon Huntsman, who has increasingly staked his candidacy on New Hampshire, said this morning that he will boycott the Nevada caucuses unless the state moves its voting date out of the Granite State’s way.
He also challenged Mitt Romney to do the same.
Nevada currently has set its date for Jan. 14, but New Hampshire Secretary of State Bill Gardner demanded yesterday that Nevada move its voting back to Jan. 17. It is all part of a quadrennial ritual where states jockey for voting positions.
Now that would just be tragic. By the way, who is Jon Huntsman?
